“Animal rights supporters from 9 upwards will love ALAN DAVIDSON’s Escape from Cold Ditch, which attacks battery farming in the manner of a Second World War prison escape drama” – THE TIMES
Targeted Age Group:
9 – 16
Book Price: $2.99
Alan Davidson was living in rural Dorset when he dreamed up the idea for Escape from Cold Ditch. His daily three mile walk took him past a local chicken battery farm. He always felt that the huge, silent, sinister-looking shed was reminiscent of a Second World War POW camp. He thought of the “prisoners” inside, the hundreds of hens locked in their little “prison cells” and started to imagine them singing old wartime songs to keep their spirits up. And thus he began to plan their Great Escape…
Of all Alan’s children’s titles, this one if a great favorite with teachers and homeschoolers alike.
