Mei-Mei had the six happiest hens in China. She gave them treats and fresh hay baths, and when she called to them — gu gu gu gu gu! — they all ran to her as fast as they could. But one of the hens, Daisy, was not always so happy. The other hens picked on Daisy and pushed her off the perch every night. Then one day, Daisy is accidentally washed out onto the river in a basket and she soon learns to stand up for herself. When she finds her way home, this plucky little hen is no longer afraid as she bravely takes her place on the roost.
Jan Brett, The New York Times best-selling author/illustrator, traveled to China to do research for the glorious illustrations in this heart-warming tale of self-esteem and self-confidence.
