This is folk-tale based on the Jewish law "finders aren't keepers". I was following the book until the end - however, it seems to work out for the person who lost the hen in the first place but the finders who put in all of the work don't seem to have benefited?! Maybe I am missing something?!
Cute re-telling of a traditional folk tale. Sophie really enjoyed all the animals in the book as well as the catch phrase "finders aren't keepers." The artwork is quite detailed and reminded me of Jan Brett's illustrations.
What a great story to let kids wrap their heads around. Would THEY give the whole herd of goats away? Plus I love Elisa Kleven.

Charming story adapted from the Talmud. Beautiful folk art illustrations.
