It isn’t all about France, France, France here. In fact, for us, it’s often more about Cluck, Quack, Meow and Woof. So, we are taking the path less travelled today and our Vive le Livre Book Club is recommending a lovely and humourous book about Backyard Chickens called Mucky Cluckers, Tales from the Chicken Run by Trish Colton.
The title alone was enough for us to want to read it. We do so love a tongue in cheek, bring a wry smile to our face description. Add in that it is a book, diary in style, of observations of chicken antics and we were hooked. We have spent the last few years learning about and watching the shenanigans of our chickens and this book certainly struck a chord.
Now you may not be a backyard chicken owner, may not wish to be, or maybe you aspire, this book will give you insight into a strange new world, a world that gets curiously addictive. If nothing else it will make you view chickens in a new light and at the least makes you smile with its feathered tales. It’s a lovely little read.
