Chicken Nugget

See that tiny little chick? That’s Chicken Nugget. Way to cute to eat. Way too brave to get eaten! By the best-loved author of Goodnight Tractor, this cuddly story proves that being small doesn’t matter if you’re smart. Chicken Nugget is the littlest in his family. No one ever listens to him. But when his long-lost cousin Franz comes to stay, Nugget feels very worried. Franz is tall. He has red fur and a long bushy tail. He always looks hungry. There’s something very fishy – or foxy – about this chicken. What should Nugget do?
