All chicken lovers everywhere will warm to this story! Here, each farmyard creature shows its own character and usefulness, and certainly hens are essential to a happy and successful farm. But whilst others dutifully lay eggs daily, Higgledy Piggledy just dances, twirling and whirling across the farmyard. The other animals tell her she is lazy, and they list all their own usefulness, catching mice, giving milk, providing wool. H. Piggeldy is unconcerned and continues to practice her pirouettes. When Max the kitten mewls, stuck high in an oak tree, all the creatures want and try to help, but it is H.P. who saves the day. The kitten has been too terrified to move, but H.P.’s elegant dancing gives it the courage to make the steep descent alone, dancing his way delicately down the trunk. So, of course, everyone then wants to dance, and H.P. teaches them. The pictures perfectly match this charming story, from the title page, when H.P.’s dancing feet emerge first from the egg, right to the final page where all the animals are so enjoying their dance. This is a celebratory book, full of life and energy, which will be especially loved by all families who have the fun of keeping chickens.
