    The bin chickens of today are a far cry from the elegance of their Nile-dwelling Ibis ancestors.

    One particular bin chicken is mercilessly bullied by the other birds, as she rummages in the stinking rubbish for half-eaten pies and day-old chips. But their disgust doesn't bother her: she spends her time diving in the trash with her friend the rat.

    At the end of the day she returns to her nest and chicks. She teaches her chicks not to let people's judgement get to them, because what others see as a fall from grace, she sees as survival.

    This hilariously pragmatic book is a call to arms for anyone who's ever felt excluded for being an individual. It's also a thought-provoking look at the way we treat animals that have adapted to survive in an urban environment.

    The rhyming text and grossly evocative illustrations make this a romp of a read.
