Chook (AKA Chicken) is bit of a scaredy cat and when he finds he has to walk to school on his own when Mum has an appointment he asks Dad what he should do. Dad only has one rule and that is – No Talking to Anyone on the Way until you are inside the school gates.  This throws Chook into a panic as he has a big network of people out there in the community to whom he ALWAYS speaks on is way to school. This is a satisfying book for very new emerging readers (possibly more for boys) with a real plot, very easy reading, lots of white space and plenty to think about.
