Chicken Stu isn’t a typical barnyard bird. From the top of the silo, he stares at the city in the distance, dreaming of lattés, museums, and penthouse suites. But the other animals warn him the city is no place for fowl. A chicken’s home, they say, is on the farm. When Stu finds himself on a truck headed toward the bright lights and tall buildings, he decides to prove just how citified farming can be!
Chicks and the City is a playful, rhyming romp through the hustle and bustle of urban life that exists alongside beautiful, thriving city gardens everywhere. Chicken Stu’s adventure from the country to the city reveals that the grass is green on both sides!– Dar Hosta-James, Author/Illustrator
I’m excited to see Chicken Stu’s story come to life on the page. From his humble beginnings on the farm, Chicken Stu is poised to become the official spokes-chicken for Urban Agriculture. – John Porter – Urban Agriculture Program Coordinator, Nebraska Extension, and former chair, West Virginia Urban Agriculture Conference
