Hungry Hen

Hungry Hen eats and eats and grows fatter and fatter. High on the hill a hungry fox watches, and grows thinner and thinner. One day he can stand it no longer. What do you think happens? Well – it’s not what you think! This bright and funny picture book is firmly established as a modern classic, with its simple story and brilliant twist at the end. Really easy to read, with vibrant pictures too: sheer storytime delight.
