In response to Bluebookbelle’s Bookish Photo A Day Challenge – February 2015 #AWORphotoaday
For my mother character, I’m going to choose a hen! Sprout. From:
The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly
by Sun-Mi Hwang
I read this book recently and really it really moved me.
Despite being the story of a hen who is rescued from the brink of death, befriends a mallard, fends off a weasel, hatching an egg, (which wasn’t hers), and facing prejudices and heartache – the underlying messages of loyalty, resilience, sacrifice & perseverance of a mother are ever-present.
…It does have a sad end, but in lovely poignant way.
A must for your bookshelf.
