Reviews

'The story is full of timely action but not everything goes eggs-actly to plan. The plot is very engaging for both younger and older audiences. In my opinion, this is very well written for a debut published book. It's zany, fun and full of many laugh-out-loud moments to keep you on your claws. This is one of the best chick flick books that I've read. At least this is what I would describe as a chick flick read to be enjoyed. It is cool, easy to read and will transport you to a world of pure fantasy.' -- Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books 'A great twist on an end of the world apocalypse story! ... This story should appeal to both sexes. I would recommend Robot Chickens for both Year 5 and 6. This would also be a good class read because it is exciting and would be a good text to use for the discussion of survival.' -- Armadillo Magazine 'McCall's debut won publication with the Kelpies Prize, which seeks new Scottish fiction for young readers. The totally foolish premise is made believable through strong writing and realistic characters. The swift pace and at-times goofy action sequences will charm readers who like their action with a few laughs. Kids saving themselves from the egg-pocalypse: priceless.' -- Kirkus Reviews
