Barossa Nanna and The Lonely Chook is gentle story about loss and loneliness and friendship. A beautifully illustrated book and heart warming tale, Barossa Nanna and the Lonely Chook is ideal for parents, grandparents and children.

The book tells the story of The Lonely Chook who, after losing her hen friends, spends her days annoying the Barossa Nanna in her garden. Every morning The Lonely Chook scratches up a mess in the garden, squawks at herself in the mirror and runs after Cloud the dog trying to be friends with her.

Heather gently explains the ups and downs of grief and recovery in a way that children can understand and relate. Most creatures big and small have an underlying need for companionship, and The Lonely Chook is no different.
