Cheeky Chick!

By Julia Jarman (Author), Tom Knight (Illustrator)


Format Hardcover Picture Book


A curious and single-minded baby chick takes off to explore the farm.

Cheeky Chick can’t help being cheeky—he just wants to explore. With a dollop of luck and under the watchful eye of the farmyard animals, he learns a valuable lesson that he can pass on to the next generation of eager chicks!

A funny, characterful picture book that children will want to read again and again.
"Three cheers for this unlikely but intrepid hero." —Kirkus

“It might take a village to raise a child, but it takes a farmyard to raise a chick in this cute British import . . . . Knight’s colorful cartoonish illustrations are hilariously expressive, whether they are conveying the fox’s damp dismay or the chick’s carefree attitude. Jarman’s rhyming verses smoothly roll off the tongue, making for a fun read-aloud . . . . A sweet and silly adventure romp for the fans of other farm classics like Stoeke’s Minerva Louise.”—School Library Journal -
