This is a book about a hen named Sprout.  Every day the eggs she lays are taken from her and sold at the market and each morning that the barn doors are open, she catches a glimpse of what her future could hold instead.

A future where like the other farm animals, she too can roam free.  So one day, Sprout hatches (no pun intended) a daring plan of escape.

"An anthem for freedom, individuality and motherhood featuring a plucky, spirited heroine who rebels against the tradition-bound world of the barnyard, The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly is a novel of universal resonance that also opens a window on Korea, where it has captivated millions of readers. And with its array of animal characters--the hen, the duck, the rooster, the dog, the weasel--it calls to mind such classics in English as Animal Farm and Charlotte's Web."

Beautifully illustrated, The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly is a modern-day fable everyone should read.
