About this product
- DescriptionEveryone has heard the story of Henny Penny, and how her foolishness led her to a terrible end. But that is the version from the fox's point of view. In this beautifully illustrated retelling, readers will enjoy a cheery new take on the tale of Henny Penny, who may have been smarter than anyone previously thought. The familiar repetition of silly names and the even sillier antics of the animal characters will win over readers as they have for generations, while Sophie Windham's gorgeous illustrations bring a fresh new perspective to this heroic hen's tale. Reviews French's text grants the famous fowl a considerable intelligence upgrade. -Publishers Weekly [A] Clever retelling...Windham's artwork lends the illustrations a country feel that suits the text perfectly. A welcome addition to the fairy-tale genre. -Kirkus Reviews A charmingly fleshed-out version of the traditional story... Brightly colored and skillfully drawn illustrations balance perfectly with the delightful text and draw readers into their depths. -School Library Journal About the Author Vivian French is an acclaimed poet living in England.
