Fast, brave Lami has to learn to do quick thinking, not quick running, if she wants to be the best chicken catcher in the village! Lami loves chickens. She's the best chicken catcher in the village. She's fast, she's brave and she always catches that chicken.

Until the day she chases one up the baobab tree, slips ... and falls. How can she catch chickens with a sore ankle? Could there be another way to catch that chicken? Told with great humour by Nigerian storyteller, Atinuke, this story of the headstrong, impetuous Lami will strike a chord with all children.

The gentle message - to use quick thinking not just quick running - gives an incredibly satisfying ending, while Angela Brooksbank's beautiful artwork captures the energy and the beauty of the West African setting perfectly.
