Part I: Claws, Paws, Feathers & Jaws
Relegated to a life without hope for anything more than a squalid existence at the bottom of the pecking order, Petunia, a backyard chicken, lives out her days in a flock where gossip flows as currency, with malice at its heart and boredom by its side. Petunia’s plight seems insurmountable until a strange woman’s tears hurl her through a labyrinth that she never anticipated and into a friendship she might not survive.
Part II: The Two Tails
As The Two Tails opens, the flock confronts a spiral of death and disappearance. Ensnared by a rapacious raccoon and desperate for a way out, Petunia must throw herself at the mercy of the dark, open road with little more than gumption, a pair of useless wings, and a dubious companion as her guide.
Praise for Petunia Part I
This was a great book to read for both adult and children alike. The antics of chickens through the eyes of animals is priceless. I highly recommend it!
This beautifully written and delightfully illustrated little book captures the imagination, and explores some quite dark themes – there is loneliness, bullying and despair, but there is also friendship and loyalty, and some genuine laugh out loud funny moments, as Macy and Petunia take on the wrath of the chicken supremo, and her cluster of conspirator chickens.
This was an amazingly written and original story. I’ve never read anything like this before. The story is so serious but there’s some really funny moments also that keep you reading and wanting to know what happens next…
This is a must read so go get it!!
A beautiful book, one for all the family!…This is not just a story about farmyard animals, this is a story about courage, trust, mistrust, bullies, love, friendship, comedy…I can not wait to read these books to my children they will love them!
