The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly by Sun-mi Hwang - A Review

It's been a while since I read this little story and it still makes me a little bit sad when I think about it. I am talking about the book The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly by Sun-mi Hwang

This book was originally published in 2000 in Korean and was translated in English in 2013 ( I've read the Greek translation by Dioptra Publications). 

In this little book (only 160 pages) we follow a little hen named Sprout. Her dream is to hatch an egg of her own and raise her little chicken. She no longer wants to lay eggs on command. When she finally succeeds then her problems begin. she doesn't find the approval she expected and the dangers for her and her baby are a lot. 

The story of Sprout is very beautiful and emotional. As with her other book, The Dog Who Dared to Dream, the author manages to tell us the story with a very unique way that makes it look like a fairy tale. A fairy tale with a deeper meaning. 

It is an anthem for freedom, individuality and motherhood featuring a plucky, spirited heroine who rebels against the tradition-bound world of the barnyard. A hen who dares to dream...

Rating : 4 Stars
