Book Description

7 Mar 2013

Busy Hen has five little chicks to look after while making sure number six - still an egg - stays warm. The last thing she needs is hairy, scary Fox sniffing about. She is frantic when the other birds warn her that her chicks are in danger, but her five little chicks are a lot braver than she realises!

From the author of HUG and DUCK IN THE TRUCK, this rollicking, rhythmic Easter text is rammed with catchy refrains that beg to be shouted out. Children will love the repeated action words and thinking of new ways to act them out.

More About the Author

Jez Alborough is the author and illustrator of over 45 books for children. His Eddy and the Bear trilogy (which began with the much-loved Where's My Teddy in 1992) has sold nearly four and a half million copies and was made into an award-winning animated television series.

Duck in the Truck (published in 1999) heralded the start of another bestselling series, this time featuring the irrepressible Duck and his three friends - Frog, Goat and Sheep. There are currently nine books in the Duck series and 1.2 million copies have been sold.

In 2000 Jez created Hug - a powerful and touching book of only three words about a baby chimpanzee called Bobo who loses his Mom. Oprah Winfrey raved about it on her show when she chose it for her recommended reading list while Richard Curtis (the writer and director of Four Weddings and a Funeral) selected it as one of his 'Best Books', calling it 'classic family drama which holds up well next to Jez's other masterpieces.' Bobo went on to star in two more classics; Tall ( which along with Hug won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Book Award) and Yes. The series has sold 1.76 million copies.

Jez's latest publictaion is Six Little Chicks and next in production is a new rhyming series introducing Nat the Cat and his two friends Hugo the Hare and Billy the Goat. You can share Nat the Cat's journey from idea to publication as it happens in my Book Blog).

Jez lives in West London. You can read more about his books in the library. His official Facebook page is and you can follow him on Twitter @JezAlborough.

Product Description


"With the Easter celebration soon to be with us, this charming heart warming tale will delight children, as it is full of bright artwork telling us about the funny energy fuelled story of six courageous chicks." (South Wales Evening Post)

"Dramatic (and) funny ... it's a winner for children aged 2+" (Amanda Craig The Times)

"Jez Alborough gives Chick Lit a good name....The book has a bright, jolly and yet predatory feel. The chicks are intensely yellow and the fox has fearsome green eyes - dreaming of a snappy Easter." (Kate Kellaway The Guardian)

"beautiful illustrations and a bouncy rhyming text" (Sarah Kingsford The Sunday Express)

"This beautifully illustrated, rhyming tale uses repetition of words and movements that small children will love to mimic." (Booktrust)

4.0 out of 5 stars Six little chicks 7 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A lovely picture story book for our toddler aged 3, although it would suit a younger child there is a bad fox in it. It is a story of a mother hen always looking after her 5 x chicks while still sitting on an unhatched egg. The chicks are out to play and the nervous hen is on the look out for the bad fox. There are good clear and colourful pitures. Repetitive words for ease of story telling and for a child to join in. When the big bad fox pocks his nose into the hut he gets his come-up-ance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alborough does it again 8 July 2013
I love Jez Alborough books they are so fantastic for reading aloud and are firm favourites in library story time. Six little chicks did not disappoint at all engaging drawings, fab story , repetition , a very menacing but not too scary baddie. I have used it with a number of nursery and school groups and it has gone down a treat. More like this please!
