"I am delighted and honoured that chicken! Newspaper will be the Patron pledge for David's poetry book 'Just Where You Left it … and Other Poems' for children. Along with art and design, I have always been passionate about the written word in all types of forms, including poetry. The importance of the written word, and how it can intrigue, engage and influence children, has always fascinated me and the synergies behind our respective projects are incredibly similar. I have really enjoyed reading David's brilliant excerpt and can't wait to read his full collection of poems. I look forward to working with him on this exciting new partnership."  

Well Ken, I’m thrilled that chicken! has got on board and I'm also really looking forward to working with you too! Ken is passionate about not only getting children reading but also has a special talent in giving them something really worthwhile to read. chicken! Newspaper is a really imaginative, informative, engaging and highly relevant publication for children aged 7-12. It's a fantastic publication that hits the mark, and I look forward to helping try to widen its distribution and reach. See for yourself and take a look at the chicken! Newspaper website here; their latest issue can be seen here and is a really good example of the sort of issues and topics that are covered and what chicken! Newspaper is all about.
