Hannah the hen spends a whole day on the farm looking for a quiet place to lay her eggs, so that she can have chicks of her own. The pigs grunt too loudly, the lambs are too playful, the cows are too clumsy... Will Hannah ever find a nice quiet place where her eggs will be safe?
A charming board book for very young children, which introduces farmyard animals and their characteristics. With lively illustrations in a classic style.
