Henny by Elizabeth Rose Stanton

Henny is not your usual chicken - she's a chicken born with arms!

"Sometimes Henny liked having arms and sometimes she didn't.

She liked being different.

She didn't like being different."

This is a sweet and funny story about how Henny copes with being different. 
She faces her worries & discovers all the good things she can do with arms - all from the safe haven of her mother's unconditional love.

I read Henny to a group of 3-4 yr olds this week to great delight. 
The children and their parents chuckled at the textual & visual humour. They poured over the simple line drawings, fascinated by Henny's arms.

Stanton is a debut picture book author with a blog & website of her own - I can't wait to see what she does next. 

But for now, if you love your quirky with a good dose of adorable, then check out Henny now!
Giggles guaranteed.
