The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly
The 2-million-copy bestselling modern fable from Korea that is winning hearts around the world
This is the story of a hen named Sprout. No longer content to lay eggs on command only to have them carted off to the market, she glimpses her future every morning through the barn doors, where the other animals roam free, and comes up with a plan to escape into the wild--and to hatch an egg of her own. An anthem for individuality and motherhood, "The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly" has captivated millions of readers in Korea, where it is a contemporary classic. Now the novel is making its way around the world, where it has the potential to inspire generations of readers the way" Jonathan Livingston Seagull" or "The Alchemist" have. And with Nomoco's evocative illustrations throughout, this first English-language edition beautifully captures the journey of an unforgettable character in world literature.
