Publisher's Summary

Hilda is a small, speckled hen. She is brave and very single-minded. When she hears that her aunt has just hatched five baby chicks, she is very excited, and can’t wait to go and see them.
There is a problem; however her aunt lives five miles away. How will Hilda ever travel all the way to her farm? But she has her heart set on getting there, and goes out to hitch a lift on a rubbish lorry, a fire engine, a scooter and even a steam roller!
At first she is not very successful, but she keeps trying, because when Hilda makes up her mind, nothing and no one can stop her...
A heart-warming story from best-selling author Jill Tomlinson, whose books have been hugely popular for nearly 30 years.
Told in clear, simple language, they are ideal for young listeners who can identify with the baby animals and their adventures. The Hen Who Wouldn’t Give Up is an enchanting tale, read by Maureen Lipman, which will appeal to any child who loves animals or who is determined and resourceful.

Totally delightful

Would you listen to The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up again? Why?

Fantastic narration, good positive messages for kids, and clever enough for adults to enjoy.

Hilda the Hen

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I rarely have that opportunity. But when it was over, we went right back to the beginning and started listening to it all over again...

Any additional comments?

The cover is misleading: this book is ONLY The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up (The Otter story has to be purchased separately)
