Debut Picture Book Author Feature

The Yorkshire Post features illustrator Krystina Litten:

In her first children's book Chickens Can't See in the Dark, Krystina Litten's main character, Pippa the hen is told by her teacher that chickens can't see in the dark. Kristyna takes up the tale: "She's like, 'forget that, I want to see in the dark... Her childhood, she says, was spent exploring, excavating and building dens with her brother and their neighbours, in a gang they called the Forest Adventurers. The family kept chickens in their large garden, and as a child she holidayed on her grandparents' smallholding in the Czech Republic, where they lived on poultry and rabbits, home-grown vegetables and mushrooms from the forest. "Our chickens all had individual personalities," Kristyna remembers.
