The Chicken Thief
Writing and art by Beatrice Rodriguez
Publisher: Gecko Press
What's it about?
This is sold as a wordless book where children can invent their narratives to go along with the illustrations. It's really a comic - sequential art where the entire double page is given over to the art, and there are no narrative boxes, speech bubbles, or sound effects.
It's only about 10 pages long and is pretty simple - fox grabs chicken and runs off, chicken's friends follow in hot pursuit through forest, sea and sand. There is a twist at the end!
