Children’s Book Council Honour Book 2010.
When Kip finds his voice and begins to crow he causes all sorts of problems for Mrs Bea’s neighbours. Reluctantly Mrs Bea sends him away but much to the neighbours surprise life is not as good as they thought it would be without him.
Beautifully illustrated, the book captures not only the story being told in the text but the other activities going on in the neighbourhood.
A warm celebration of suburban life.
