Jane Davis – The Guardian’s Favourite Comedian?

For those of you who don’t already, you can follow Jane Davis on Twitter here. As you might expect, Jane mainly tweets about reading and issues surrounding literacy, goings on within the office and the odd Fact of the Day gets an outing in the Twitterverse.

Recently Jane took a bit of a break from the above, tweeting The Guardian’s Children’s Books Twitter page. The page, which at the time of writing had 1,337 followers, obviously liked the joke enough to retweet it:

Classic. Giggles and groans galore across the Guardian readership.

Maybe if you can do better (keep it clean!), you should leave your efforts at the bottom of the page, or you could tweet GdnChildrensBks yourselves.

    The next day the chicken goes into the New Reader Library and says ‘Book book book.’

    The librarian gives it The Savage, A Little Aloud, and The Unforgotten Coat.

    The librarian thinks, ‘We need to collect some outcomes here,’ and follows the chicken out of the building.
