After the end of another school year, Big Chook along with his five friends gather to plan their holiday fun. In a desperate effort to hold onto their youth, they agree to make this the best holidays ever. But it comes at a cost. A cost so high it sees adulthood forced upon them, faster than they had ever realised possible. Will this be their last childhood adventure together?
Leonardo di Vinci, Alexander the Great and Aristotle are some of the most legendary people of all time. But they tremble in comparison to the legend that is Big Chook…Or so he hopes one day.
When Big Chook’s group of friends go their own way, he is forced to face high school and the prospect of fitting in alone. Will Big Chook find the same strength in his soul that made Leonardo, Alexander and Aristotle legendary? Or will he be destined to be friendless for the rest of his life?
It’s holiday time and Big Chook races to join his friends. Wally, Three Parts Pete, Handsome Harry, and the newcomer to their group, a fiery young girl called Kirstin. The five head into the nearby bush land and begin their journey for the valley creek area called Archie’s, where Wally found a great spot to build a cubby house. It’s well hidden and overlooks Archie’s valley and the creek below.
The Adventures of Big Chook is a rattling good adventure. The comedy comes from the situations and relationships, as four ordinary boys compete to impress one girl, and extract the maximum drama from their last few weeks of vacation freedom.
