Publisher's Summary

The 2 million-copy best-selling modern fable from Korea that is winning hearts around the world

This is the story of a 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. An anthem for individuality and motherhood, The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly has captivated millions of fans in Korea, where it is a contemporary classic. Now the novel is making its way around the world, where it has the potential to inspire generations the way Jonathan Livingston Seagull or The Alchemist have. This first English-language edition beautifully captures the journey of an unforgettable character in world literature.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Jill Larson credibly evokes human qualities in the characters, who are a cast of barnyard animals. Her vocals are tender when rendering Sprout, the protagonist, varying when it comes the harsh ducks, roosters, and hens. The listener is drawn into this tale of survival, bolstered by Larson's dexterity. She differentiates between male and female animals in addition to the various species. Her quieter tones give this volume the quality of a bedtime story." (AudioFile)
