Chicken On The Roof

 
By Matt Goodfellow

'there's a chicken
there's a chicken
there's a chicken on the roof
The only way she's coming down is chicken parachute!'

Dance through deserts and crawl through caves. Discover a sorcerer's wand or a slice of lunar lemon. Hide in the fur of an African goat, check for rain snakes and gobbling goblins - and look out for a chicken on the roof! This is a spellbinding collection from a poet whose high-energy performances delight children across the UK.
