I have always loved the story of chicken Licken. It is about a chicken who is hit on the head by an acorn and thinks the sky is falling. He sets off to tell the king and meets many friends on the way. This "Read it yourself" version has about 20 words on each page in big print. It also has lovely bright colour illustration on every page and a place at the front to write who the book belongs to. This is a perfect book to help your child learn to read with.

A well told, simply illustrated version of a classic tale.
My daughter requests this book every night before bed and loves to finish each page herself (although she can't yet read).
It's also not too graphic regarding what happens in the Foxy Loxy Family Lair at dinner time.
Smashing!

A Kid's Review on 4 Sept. 2009
Format: Hardcover
I have grown atached to this book and i am now in year 6 and still love it! I have never been sick of it. I would recomend this book to everyone because it is suitable for all ages and it has easy text. It is funny and humourous. I LOVE every part of this story. Chicken Licken is great and all my friends liked it. It is very repetative which is what i like about it. It would be a brilliant idea for a birthday present for a little boy or girl. I will always love this book.

The First Favourite Tales series is superb - excellent stories with good illustrations and just the right length to read as a bedtime stories!
Chicken Licken has to find the king as "the sky is falling down" and on his way encounters drakey lakey, goosey loosey et al. They also run into Foxy Loxy - trouble is Foxy Loxy lures them to his family lair, so they dont actually make it to see the king. Reading this to my 3/4 year old I thought it was a bit harsh, but she didnt bat an eyelid.
Overall a good book!

Children will love this story especially the rhyming names of the animals turkey lurkey, foxy loxy etc. If reading to your child you will get to know them very well! I read this many times to my children and have just bought it for my grandaughter. A real favourite

This book reminds me of my childhood. My brother, sisters, cousins and I loved it. But this is not the ending I remember. My little boy was close to tears and said well that wasn't very kind mummy when Foxy Loxy ate Chicken Licken and his friends. Would have much preferred to read my sons the version where Foxy Loxy gets hit on the head with the acorn and runs off to tell the King that the sky is falling in and was never seen again!

I'm pushing seventy. I bought this for my darling Granddaughter who is three and a half.Oh -a real bit of nostalgia! Reading this book to her took me back to my primary school in the late forties. She loves the book too!

Our granchildren love this book. It was one of their mummy's favourites when she was little. They enjoy the repetativeness of the names and love to join in as it's being read to them. At first I skipped the last page ( in case it upset them) a fact that was noticed by our three year old grandson. He now insusts that I read the end of the story and always asks ," But why did the foxes eat them all for tea Gramma?"
