Ian Thomson's regal yet approachable tone perfectly suits Helme Heine's lighthearted children's tale of a king faced with a interesting quandary: Which of three hens is the most beautiful? Dotty has the most striking feathers, Stalky has the most glamorous legs, and Plumy has the most breathtaking crest, so the King finally decides that the one who lays the perfect egg will magically be transformed into a princess.
The clucking of hens sprinkled throughout coupled with Thompson's engaging delivery makes this audiobook a breezy, enjoyable listen.
