Synopsis

The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up by Jill Tomlinson

Hilda is a small, speckled hen. And when Hilda makes up her mind, nothing can stop her. Hilda's auntie has just had a family of chicks, and she's determined to visit them. But how is Hilda going to travel the five miles to her auntie's farm? Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades.

This edition is stunningly illustrated by Paul Howard, making The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up an even more enjoyable story for young readers.

About the Author

Jill Tomlinson

Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did!

It did not come easily. Her first story, The Bus who went to Church, was rejected by sixteen publishers before it was accepted for a picture book. Several other picture books followed until she felt a need to stretch herself further. She wrote five short stories about a hen wanting to visit an aunt and her chicks, and Methuen thought that if she wrote another five stories on the same theme the book would fit well into their new ‘Read Aloud’ series.
