CLUCK: A Book of Happiness for Chicken Lovers (Exisle Publishing, distributed by QDS/Quarto). Any admirer of the humble chicken knows there’s more to these endearing, quirky clever characters than the eggs they produce. And the popularity of backyard chickens is on the rise–chickens are no longer only a feature of the rural countryside– their popularity is booming in the suburbs, and even in some cities. People enjoy their eccentric and vibrant company, and love sharing their fresh and environmentally friendly eggs with family and neighbors.
CLUCK celebrates chickens, with gorgeous photographs and quotes from celebrities and historical figures (Oscar Wilde, C.S. Lewis, Mark Twain, for example). Some are philosophical, others lighthearted – all are memorable.
Accompanied by beautiful photos of chickens from farm animals to backyard birds, this is a beautiful gift book.
