-- The Big Issue, Kids' Books of the Year 2014
'Fans of action will enjoy the fast-paced skirmishes and fully-realized setting, while fans of comedy will appreciate the satirical elements, corny chicken jokes, and even cornier chicken puns... With humor, action, and layered characters, this title will be a hit with readers looking for a solid-albeit goofy-science-fiction story.'
-- School Library Journal
'Simply the most enjoyable children's book I have read this year so far... I cannot recommend this book highly enough - and of course, it appeals equally to boys and girls.'
-- The School Librarian
'It's zany, fun and full of many laugh-out-loud moments to keep you on your claws... It is cool, easy to read and will transport you to a world of pure fantasy.'
-- Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books
'A great twist on an end of the world apocalypse story! ... This story should appeal to both sexes. I would recommend Robot Chickens for both Year 5 and 6. This would also be a good class read because it is exciting and would be a good text to use for the discussion of survival.'
-- Armadillo Magazine
'The totally foolish premise is made believable through strong writing and realistic characters. The swift pace and at-times goofy action sequences will charm readers who like their action with a few laughs.'
