Author(s): Jez Alborough
Busy Hen has five little chicks to look after while making sure number six - still an egg- stays warm. The last thing she needs is hairy, scary Fox sniffing about. She is frantic when the other birds warn her that her chicks are in danger, but her five little chicks are a lot braver than she realises! The rollicking rhythmic text is rammed with catchy refrains that beg to be shouted out. Children will love the repeated action words and thinking of new ways to act them out.

A lovely, heart-warming tale of six courageous chicks from the multi-million-selling Jez Alborough. The rhythmic, rhyming text begs to be read aloud.
