    At first this wasn t an easy read, I was unsure if this was a story book or if it had a hidden meaning As I read on I understood the meaning and how this book was able to connect with valuable life lessons through a simple tale of a hen that wanted an egg to hatch The book captured me for several days.

    This is a beautifully written story From the first page I cared what happened to the brave little hen who calls herself Sprout Her determination to protect her chick is inspiring I would recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed War Horse, Watership Down or Cold Moons Don t forget to keep a box of tissues close.

    This is one of the most beautiful books I have read in a long time I cried a few times whilst reading it It is a comment on how powerful the love of a mother is, it comments on how a mother has to let their child go eventually It is also a comment on conforming in society, and being unable to fit in to the norm Very powerful You will remember it for a long time.

    This is a fabulous little book I discovered it by chance in a book shop and after reading the first page, I knew I had to have it It s very heartwarming in places and heartbreaking in others If you know hens at all, you ll connect with this lovely story straight away If not, you ll still understand Sprout s plight and her dreams Definitely a tearjerker, though Lovely book.
