For Illustration Friday, and also an upcoming book reading by members of the Children's Book Council of Australia, featuring books about chickens - here's a hen getting excited about a book. This was inspired by one of the few jokes I can remember, about a chicken who keeps coming into a library and saying: 'Book, book, book.' The librarian selects books, but can't keep up with the chicken's demands. Finally the librarian follows the chicken and finds it giving the books to a frog, who grumbles: 'Reddit, reddit, reddit.'
