I added this book to my library after I read Martin Gurdon's previous book "Hen and the Art of Chicken Mainteince". Basically, this book is all about Mr. Gurdon's shamelessly promoting his first book with the help of his chickens Peeping Chicken and Vera. He makes several different road trips encountering some very strange (and sometimes very moronic people) and a few kind ones along the way.
"Travels with my Chicken" is less about the chicken and more about the people he meets along the way, which I found disappointing. It wasn't as fast moving or as heartwarming as his last book. Tho, there were still a few touching parts. Still a good read.
Also, if you don't like cursing or passages about "getting wasted" you might want to skip this one. It's not for young kids.
