By Joy Cowley
Can chickens really talk? Of course they do and more than that, they can become the best friend of boys like Joel. He lived on the farm with his parents who through the courtesy of all the hens on the property, produce and sell eggs. Semolina was Joel's friend and she could talk freely to Joel but the rest of the people on the chicken farm couldn't understand what she was saying. She was quite different to the rest farm chickens and as well as living in the house with Joel she had developed a taste for Grandma's home made brew.
This is a fun book and has hilarious moments mostly centred around Semolina, her attitude and her relationship with the family and with her friend Joel. Being a chicken she had access to lots of information that Joel would like particularly what it was that was removing some eggs from the laying pens. So great was Semolina's attraction to Grandma's brew that she used her knowledge of a big red fox to attempt to bribe Joel for some more.
If you combine a sassy talking chicken which lives in the bedroom of Joel and which sometimes puts chicken poop on the floor, and even more sassy Grandma and a busy family, you can bet that there is going to be a lot of fun.
Joy Cowley is a very competent writer with a great sense of humour and this book, written so humourously would make a great birthday, Christmas or plain present. Try it and find out.
This is a 5 star book and children 8 to 14 will enjoy it totally.
