Cleanliness (See “About” for scale): Slightly tainted (Topics to consider: violence and death.)
If you haven’t seen my review for part I of this series, take a look here: Part I.
This book took Petunia’s adventures in her little coop and expanded it out into the big wide world. Part II greatly enlarges the world that Christine had already created and introduces great, new characters. We can read about the same brave little hen with much more meaningful and large-scale escapades, more mischievous friends, and even more luck.
The Two Tails surprised me by how highly political is it. In some ways, it even reminded me of Animal Farm by George Orwell. Most of the story line has to do with the pecking order of the flock and the uprising that threatens to occur. If you enjoy action, this book has much more than the past one! Although the action was enjoyable, I did find that the drama felt a little overdone. Nonetheless, it was still greatly enjoyable to read!
I absolutely love the main character! Her fierceness and kindness are so well-integrated! Petunia proves that no matter your size, your popularity, or your luck, you can be brave – you can make a big difference.
