This book would be a useful cross-curricular resource if themes such as Paris, France, tourism, foreign language, etc. were on the agenda.
Mr Chicken who resembles an alien more than a bird is taken to the most popular sites in Paris by his French friend. Along the way he practices his basic knowledge of French.
There is no real story to this poultry's holiday and each page jumps to one of Paris' famous tourist attractions.
The author tries to end with some humour. Having eaten too much, the enormo

I won this book as part of a prize in the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop (which, incidentally, I thoroughly recommend as a way to find new Australian authors). While I'm approximately 30 years older than the target audience, I thought this was rather adorable.

Mr Chicken - or Monsieur Poulet, as we must call him when he is in Paris - is a giant chicken who decides to go and visit his friend, Yvette, in Paris. Since M. Poulet is at least three metres tall, and seems to grow taller as the bo

If you love Paris, you will enjoy this book. Mr. Chicken travels to Paris for the day to explore the city with his friend Yvette. They have a jam-packed adventure, visiting all of the familiar sites and enjoying wonderful French food together (so much so that Mr. Chicken cannot fit on the plane to fly home).

I wanted to like this book a lot. I love Paris, I love fun books. Mr Chicken is a 4 metre roast chicken, complete with parson's nose, who likes to travel. Here he does indeed set off to Paris to take in all the big sights. I was rather jealous that Mr Chicken got to take in the roof top view at Notre Dame- I went there three times to try to do that on my last trip to Paris. Regardless, I'm not quite sure I got the point.

Mr Chicken goes to Paris otherwise known as Monsieur Poulet va a Paris was one of the funniest books I have ever read.Leigh Hobbs has written many hilarious books like Horrible Harriet and Old Tom as well as Mr Chicken goes to Paris.

Surprisingly, this book brings back great memories of my friend and I sitting I the chicken coop or whatever it's called. We were reading this book with the chickens and a rooster pecked her in the butt....good times....

Mr Chicken Goes to paris was possibly the best children's book I've ever read. Mr Chicken was a delightful character, and his expressions and mannerism had me constantly smiling. I recommend this book to EVERYBODY.
