The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly: A Novel Sun-mi Hwang (Penguin, 2013) Touted as “A Korean Charlotte’s Web”, this is the story of a valiant hen named Sprout. No longer content to lay eggs on command, only to have them carted off to the market, she glimpses her future every morning through the barn doors, where the other animals roam free, and comes up with a plan to escape into the wild—and to hatch an egg of her own. Featuring specially-commissioned illustrations, this first English-language edition of Sun-mi Hwang’s anthem for freedom and individuality is a page-turning, poignant read, and would make a superb Mother’s Day gift.
