Impeccable Petunia by Katie Christine and Jonathan Edward
Young Adult, Fiction, Children, Fantasy
Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
Petunia is a chicken with a heart. She wants nothing more than to fit in with the other chickens, but thanks to jealousy and betrayal, she isn’t accepted. The one who does accept her is a human woman. They develop a strong friendship, even if they don’t completely understand each other. (Petunia does not speak the human language.)
Petunia finds herself in some of the strangest and most difficult situations including tangling with a jealous chicken, a fox and a mischievous gray cat. With the help of her friends, Petunia tries to hold on and find her own place without getting physically hurt in the process.
I didn’t know what to expect when I read this book, but I absolutely adored it. It’s cute and even has some adventure and danger tossed in to leave readers chewing on their fingernails. It's charming, sweet and highly entertaining.
I read this on my Kindle Fire and the drawings are magnificent. The colors were so vibrant. The story itself is beautifully written and fast-paced. This isn’t just a children’s book. I think adults would enjoy this too. I know I did and I normally don’t read books like this but I’m glad I read this one.
The book actually ended with a cliffhanger. I want to read the rest of this series…NOW!
5 out of 5 kitties!
