Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A heart-warming story by Jill Tomlinson about a hen with as much pluck as she has cluck! Hilda is a small, speckled hen. And when Hilda makes up her mind, nothing can stop her. Hilda's auntie has just had a family of chicks, and she's determined to visit them. But how is Hilda going to travel the five miles to her auntie's farm? Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. This edition is stunningly illustrated by Paul Howard, making The Hen Who Wouldn't Give Up an even more enjoyable story for young readers.

Author Biography

Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did! She is most known for her stories, 'The Cat Who Wanted to Grow Up', 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark', 'The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up', 'The Otter Who Wanted to Know', 'The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out' and 'The Aardvak Who Wasn't Sure'. Paul Howard is a very successful illustrator whose illustrations for the picture book of 'The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark' by Jill Tomlinson have been widely acclaimed. Paul lives in Belfast with his wife and three children. 'Bugville' was the first book Paul has written, followed by the sequel 'Trouble in Bugville'.
