About the book:

Whitney and Britney are two gorgeous chooks who live alongside Dora von Dooze. But Dora is perplexed – why do her dear chickens seem to sleep all day long? Dora decides to snoop. She follows the chooks out at night to the local jazz club where she discovers, to her amazement, that they are Whitney and Britney: Chicken Divas!

Whitney and Britney the Chicken Divas is written and Illustrated by Lucinda Gifford and published by Scholastic Australia
