The Chicken that hatched a Cow

Written by Adam Bestwick | Illustrated by Claire Evans

About the book

When three yellow chicks hatch from Mrs. Chicken’s eggs, all seems fine. But when the last egg cracks to reveal something black and white, the barn is thrown into chaos as the most imaginative guessing game begins! Join a host of farm animals in an eccentric tale of discovery to find the answer to the big question in the barn – can a chicken really hatch a cow? (or a skunk, or a whale..?) A light-hearted book exploring individuality, through the diverse world of black and white animals.

“What’s in Mrs. Chicken’s egg” all the farm animals said!
