Bert loves playing football. He dreams of being a professional footballer for his local side West Farthing F.C. There is just one problem. Bert is a chicken.
Bert lives on Manor Side Farm where the other chickens make fun of him for being different – a chicken should not play football, they say – but despite this, it is still Bert’s dream. After a chance visit to the farm by Gerald Fox, the manager of West Farthing F.C., Bert is talent spotted and offered a try out. Gerald wants Bert to be their secret weapon in an upcoming game…

Fowl is an engaging little football story right out of the Roy of the Rovers locker. This is a very entertaining and heart-warming little book. Not very long and should hold the children’s attention quite easily.
There is a lot of excitement to be had and a few morals to be taught, specifically about loyalty, friendship and brotherly love.
If I had one fault to find with the book, it would be that it could have used a few pictures or drawings. It is just a thought.
Fowl is definitely a book that I will be suggesting for the Library shelf and for friends and family.
Thank you, Matador and NetGalley, for the ARC.
