Little Hen was sad. All the other hens in the chicken house had won prizes because they were special. All except Little Hen…
Little Hen asked how she could be special too, but the others told her she was too small and ordinary. So Little Hen made up her mind to do something wonderful, and when she returned to the chicken-house many days later with five little chicks walking behind her, the others had to agree that she’d done something wonderful too.
This simple, warm and reassuring text engages the reader in a tale of the triumph of quiet determination over arrogance. Debbie Boon’s bold palette and quirky characterisation reflects the charm and simplicity of Jenny Nimmo’s story.

Jenny ran away from school at the age of 16 to join the theatre! This didn’t work out, so she ran away again to Italy to teach English. She returned to become a picture researcher at the BBC and ended up as director of JACKANORY.

Debbie Boon started her career as an in-house illustrator with a Nottingham based design agency. She published her first picture book in 1997. Debbie lives in the heart of Rutland with her husband, Nick, 3 children, an assortment of hens, a lizard and a very old dog.From the Back Cover:
Little Hen is small and ordinary. She has never won any special prizes like the other hens. She may not be big but Little Hen is brave, clever and patient and she proves that even small creatures can do something truly wonderful.
