9780192756794: Chickens Can't See in the Dark. Written and Illustrated by Kristyna Litten

Little Pippa is no headless chicken. Quite the opposite, in fact. So when Mr Benedict tells his class on Sunnyside Farm that chickens can't see in the dark, Pippa sets out to discover the secrets of night vision. After visiting the library - and then the farm shop - Pippa takes a wheelbarrow of carrots to Mother Hen's Pantry where she cooks up the most delicious carroty banquet ever seen. She then invites her feathered friends to share it. They're all sceptical about what difference eating so many carrots will make but everything is so tasty that they soon gobble down every last mouthful. Then, on a starry, moonlit evening, the chickens discover the delights of seeing in the dark and Little Pippa's plucky determination is celebrated all night long. A quirky tale that will make you giggle and guarantee that you'll never see chickens in the same way again!

About the Author:

Kristyna studied Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art and graduated in 2010. She learnt to design and create for a wide range of subject matter, often enjoying collaborations with graphic designers, costume designers and writers. She now lives in a beautiful village in Yorkshire where she
is heavily reliant on the good old pencil and a great big cup of tea to keep her going, whilst habitually singing, whistling, or twiddling her hair. She prefers to draw quickly with crayon to give an energetic line quality to her illustrations, often adding colour or other hand-produced textures
digitally. Her sophisticated colour palette, interest in pattern and hand drawn typography give Kristyna's work originality and strong identity.

Review:

'The pictures in Kristyna Litten's elegant Chickens Can't See in the Dark will make children laugh, and there is a message about standing up for your own opinion.' The Sunday Times, Ireland 'A quirky story with expressive and clever illustrations ...' The Scotsman ...will make your toddlers giggle as well as encouraging them to think for themselves, follow their dreams and perhaps even learn to love carrots just a little! Lancashire Evening Post
