POWER TO THE POULTRY!
I’m very excited that Mr Bunny’s Chocolate Factory was recommended as one of 6 political children’s books you should definitely read by Zoe Williams.
Zoe described it as a ‘systematic illustration of the trade union movement’. When I was making the book this interpretation didn’t occur to me until quite late in the process. I always thought the heart of the book was about what’s fair and what’s not fair and what might you do if things became incredibly unfair. On reflection, I think it’s more than a little influenced by my trade unionist mother!
