A modern-day tale about a hen's search for motherhood and the meaning of life is a Korean bestseller. A gentler, feminine version of ANIMAL FARM, this is a fable for all ages. 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. M.R. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2014]
