Victorian England. Christmas Eve. Young Jack, a blind boy of 10 years, sits alone by the hearth, making a Christmas wish: Jack would like a dog to keep him company. Suddenly Jack hears a frantic scrambling in the chimney and something plops into the room. Jack is overjoyed! Santa has brought him a dog!
Except it's actually a chicken, but don't tell Jack. He's never seen a dog or a chicken, because he's never seen anything. Jack names his pet King and over the next several days the two of them have some wonderful adventures.
This is a story to warm even the stoniest of hearts. Great for all ages, kids love it and adults find it very funny. Read it aloud to someone you love.

I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
Yes! I think I liked it more than my son did.
It was sort of like Dickens. But with a crazy twist.
The Narrator was so Dramatic and Funny. He really brought the story to life. Even the chicken. This was one of the few books that was greatly inhanced by the reader.
Made us laugh out loud.
This one's a keeper!!
I always read some Christmas story on Christmas Eve and I have a new one that we can listen to ! I cannot wait to hear this !
I know Brad has done great work in the past so I know I won't be disappointed !:)
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
This short audio book was a fun and entertaining Christmas listen with twists and turns. I'm a fan of chickens, so it was right up my alley. :)
