KPE Episode 93 - "Chicken Licken" by Gavin Bishop

"Chicken Licken" by Gavin Bishop

Hawea and Lanivia present this podcast about a book written by Hawea's favourite author and illustrator. This well known classic children's story is retold by Gavin and the boys enjoy the retelling and the art work on the book. Both boys are Year 6 students from Room 17.
In keeping with the fact that in this version of the story it is an acorn that falls on Chicken Licken's head, Gavin Bishop has used an autumn setting for his story. Rich red, brown and gold oak leaves cover the front and back of the book. The animals are beautiful with Henny Penny and Cocky Lockey being particularly resplendent in their plumage.
