The rest of this wonderful story is at Seligor's Castle, keeping BoPeep company.



 Miloš Macourek was born in 1926 at Kromeriz, Czechoslovakia. After studying at a school of music and drama, he held various jobs as a factory worker, scene shifter, warehouseman, publisher's editor, university lecturer on literature and art, story editor for Czechoslovak Films, and lately also as a screenwriter.  Apart from his children's books.
He writes poetry and prose, as well as plays.

Jacob's Chicken
by: Milos Macourek (1926-2002)

A chicken is a chicken, you all know how a chicken looks, sure you do, so go ahead and draw a chicken the teacher tells the children, and all the kids suck on crayons and then draw chickens, coloring them black or brown, with black or brown crayons, but wouldn't you know it, look at Jacob, he draws a chicken with every crayon in the box,This is a Chinese Rooster but
he is very colourful also.

then borrows some from Laura, and Jacob's chicken ends up with an orange head, blue wings and red thighs and the teacher says that's some bizarre chicken, what do you say children, and the kids roll with laughter while the teacher goes on, saying, that's all because Jacob wasn't paying attention, and, to tell the truth, Jacob's chicken really looks more like a turkey, no wait, a peacock, it's as big as a quail and as lean as a swallow, a peculiar pullet, to say the least, Jacob earns an F for it and the chicken, instead of being hung on the wall, migrates to a pile of misfits on top of the teacher's cabinet, the poor chicken's feelings are hurt, nothing makes it happy about being on top of a teacher's cabinet, so, deciding not to be chicken, it flies off through the open window.
