Charlie Changes Into a Chicken 
by Sam Copeland

This book is a beautiful kind of a silly, filled with laughs, wit and wisdom. Charlie McGuffin has a secret. He can change into all sorts of animals: a flea, a pigeon, even a rhino. The trouble is, he can't decide when - it only ever seems to happen when he gets worried. And right now, Charlie has a lot to fret about: his brother is in hospital, his parents are panicking about his brother and the school bully has targeted him. Even though every child dreams of super powers, Charlie isn't keen on morphing into a chicken in the middle of maths class. So with the help of his three best friends, he needs to find a way of controlling this amazing, crazy power.
