Description - Chook Chook: Mei's Secret Pets by Wai Chim
They were the fuzziest, funniest and most finely feathered baby chooks I had ever seen. Since the death of Mei's father, her ma has refused to keep animals on the family farm. So when Mei finds two baby chickens, she shares her delightful discovery with no-one but her older brother Guo. Mei does her best to keep her newfound friends a secret, but all does not go as planned. When Ma sells the chooks to the fearsome one-eyed butcher, their fates seem sealed. A heartfelt tale of love, loss and the power of kindnes set against the backdrop of rural China.
