Chicken School

Tim has the most boring family in the world. There’s no way that sparkly Sophie, the most gorgeous girl in his class, is ever going to look at him. School is really boring too, because they have to follow a very boring timetable set by Mr Dedman, the head. But everything changes when day-glo graffiti starts appearing in school: graffiti about chickens. THIS BUILDING IS FULL OF CHICKENS; DEDMAN’S CHICKEN FACTORY, and so on. Who is writing them? Why is Mr Dedman so furious? And why has Tim’s father started dressing up as Wonder Woman?

    Jeremy Strong

    At the age of three, Jeremy Strong fell out of a first floor window and landed on his head. He was in hospital for a week with a broken arm and a headache. Luckily he recovered, and today he is one of the UK’s favourite children’s authors!


    Jeremy has won lots of awards including the very first Manchester Book Award for Stuff, and the Children’s Book Award for The Hundred Mile An Hour Dog in 1997.
