Four Hens and A RoosterBook - 2005
Four hens live on a chicken farm. A little rooster lives there, too. "What a nice little rooster you have here," everyone says when they come to visit. Indeed, it seems so for a while. But then the rooster begins to take more food for himself, and the hens get less. When the hens try talking to him about fairness, they're not prepared for his reaction. The rooster turns into an egotistical barnyard bully, and the hens are worse off than before. Finally, the oldest hen puts her foot down: "We can't go on like this. We must do something." Expressive and witty illustrations give lots of pluck to this hilarious barnyard tale from Sweden's most beloved husband-and-wife duo.
