5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful tale for all ages! September 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Petunia just wants to be left alone to tend her flower garden. She loves beautiful things and sees the simplicity and joy in almost everything. She knows that she's a bit different then the other hens, but it doesn't bother her.

When she sees a woman sobbing and throwing bits of colored paper in the air, Petunia is intrigued. Even more so when the woman, who is later known as Silkie, asks Petunia for her help in choosing a paint color from the swatches. Petunia is delighted and the woman picks up Petunia and takes her in the house - unheard of! The other chickens watch in dismay to see if Petunia will come back out or be the woman's dinner.

Petunia and Silkie begin a friendship that delights them. When Macy the cat finds Petunia won't back down against his violent demands, they start a grudging friendship, much to the dismay of the other hens.

With beautiful illustrations and many elements of relationships, how to be yourself and that curiosity can be a good thing, Impeccable Petunia is a delightful tale for all ages! I can't wait to see what Petunia gets up to next - a grand adventure with great characters and an entertaining storyline.

Intelligently and humorously written, these are stories all animal lovers can relate to. The illustrations are out of this world. If you are equally interested in great writing and great art both in one finely crafted tome then Impeccable Petunia is for you. Seriously, I exhort you to check it out , it's addictive reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stories of Friendship & Mayhem May 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Impeccable Petunia is a series of wonderful stories about chickens, a cat, a fox and even humans. It is a story about an unlikely friendship between Petunia, a Wyandotte chicken, and Macy, a farm cat. Petunia is a chicken with impeccable taste and unusual talent. The other chickens led by Bernadette made Petunia's life miserable. Macy, the mischievous gray cat, rescued Petunia from various troubles created by the other chickens. The cat and the chicken went into different adventures that are sometimes comical and often led to trouble. The series is highly entertaining.
The stories are well written and the plots have enough surprises to make it interesting. The stories are never boring. Katie Christine did a wonderfu job. She handled the twists and turn of each plot very well. The illustrations are just beautiful. Jonathan Edward is a gifted artist.
I would definitely recommend Impeccable to any reader. I especially recommend it to children. I think children of all ages will enjoy Impeccable Petunia.

`The only chick with black and white markings, Petunia stood out, and often found herself the subject of other chick's ridicule, and worse.'

Petunia is a hen who prefers spending her time in her own little garden full of beautiful, colourful flowers, rather than the confines of the chicken coop or the company of the other hens.

`The hen yard felt small and oppressive, but amidst the confinement and crowded quarters, Petunia had carved out her own little piece of joy. Her garden lay tucked into a forgotten corner at the far end of the fence.'

Bernadette, with `piercing, bulging eyes', is the hen who tries to rule the roost and dominate the other chicks, whilst Francine is the head of the brood. However, the Orpas are the ones to really be afraid of... Sadly, Petunia has several encounters with these unfriendly hens as she is different in her ways from them, and therefore distrusted.

Petunia offers companionship to the lady who lives in the house, learning new things all the time, and she derives much happiness from the time she spends with Silkie, as she has named the lady. She is alone amongst the hens in enjoying spending time with a human; the others viewed humans `with the utmost suspicion and contempt.' Macy is the resident cat, with whom Petunia has some interesting and surprising encounters as an unusual kind of friendship forms.

The story encompasses themes of loneliness and being different, of cruel bullying and finding unexpected friendship. Through the behaviour of the hens towards Petunia, who finds herself at the bottom of the pecking order, the author demonstrates how cliques can gang up on individuals and cause fear through their intimidation of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story for All Ages January 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Petunia is not like other chickens. She loves nature and all the colors she finds. She has a little garden in the chicken yard and tries to stay out of the way of the other chickens. This book follows her adventures with the other chickens, the cat Macy, and their new owner whom she starts calling Silkie.

The biggest trouble that Petunia finds herself in is with the other chickens. The leader and her daughter are insistent that Petunia should gossip, chase bugs, and roost just like everyone else. But that is so hard when Silkie is always bringing Petunia into the house to help with the remodel.

The only thing that I had a little bit of a struggle with is some chapters ended in the middle of a conflict. Off the top of my head I can think of a scene where Petunia is confronted by the leader and going to get into an argument about where she has been and before Petunia can reply, the chapter ends.

Beyond that, I really liked this story. It's a great children's story. I think this would be a great way to introduce kids to reading. I can't wait to find out what trouble Petunia gets herself into next.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
