Higgledy Piggledy the Hen Who Loved to Dance by Francesca Simon


Higgledy Piggledy the Hen Who Loved to Dance by Francesca Simon

A delightful farmyard story full of energy and fun from Francesca Simon, author of the bestselling Horrid Henry series. Higgledy Piggledy loves to dance - but what good is a dancing hen? The other animals can do much more useful things like pulling the cart, giving milk and making wool. Then one afternoon, Max the kitten is in trouble and none of the other animals can help. Perhaps Higgledy Piggledy and her dancing can save the day?
