Product description

A hen brings hope to soldiers in the French trenches in this moving picture book classic. Pick this if you like Michael Foreman’s War Game. A young soldier is fighting in wartime France when he finds a starving little hen. He tucks her into his jacket and adopts her. At first, the other soldiers laugh at him for sharing his meagre food rations. But when the hen begins to lay eggs for them, she touches their hearts with her courage. A classic book with truly beautiful pictures and an unforgettable theme. Some picture books make you laugh. A few make you cry. This one will make you feel and think.
