Synopsis

Something Wonderful by Jenny Nimmo

Little Hen was sad. All the other hens in the chicken house had won prizes because they were special. All except Little Hen...Little Hen asked how she could be special too, but the others told her she was too small and ordinary. So Little Hen made up her mind to do something wonderful, and when she returned to the chicken-house many days later with five little chicks walking behind her, the others had to agree that she'd done something wonderful too. This simple, warm and reassuring text engages the reader in a tale of the triumph of quiet determination over arrogance. Debbie Boon's bold palette and quirky characterisation reflects the charm and simplicity of Jenny Nimmo's story. AGE 2-4

About the Author

Jenny Nimmo

Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales. Her husband, David Wynn Millward, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently. She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live.

For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. At boarding school, reading was her way to overcome loneliness or boredom. However, she is aware that not everyone finds reading comes easily, and feels passionately that every child should have all the help they need, and access to as many books as they want.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
