It's been a while since I've done a post here, so here's a Whacko The Chook puppet I made a few months back...

I'd like to do something more substantial with it one day, when I've made a body. Whacko The Chook was always intended to be a series of books, but no publisher would commit to that, so Mark & I have considered other mediums for her, namely film. We were approached by a TV producer at one point who talked about making her a TV series, but he proved fruitless. Either way, this ol' broiler will be reincarnated in one form or another...


  1. I've been trying to get my own copy of Whacko the chook since I borrowed it from the library a few years ago. I loved this book - one of the best children's books I've read. I just don't seem to be able to buy it any where. I have even considered borrowing from the library again and then keeping it and just paying the bill when it comes. :-) So my question is do you know where I can buy a copy of your book? Regards Fiona ajwfjw@bigpond.com

    1. Dear Fiona,

      I only just saw your comment, so my apologies for the delay! Unfortunately, Whacko has gone out of print. However, I have a bunch of copies myself, so you can buy it directly from me. Drop me a line at whackothechook@internode.on.net and we can arrange purchase.

      Cheers :-)
