The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly is the story of a daring hen and her dreams. She does not let her egg-laying colleagues or the other farm animals in society define what she can and cannot do. What I loved about the story is that one of her dreams is to be a mother. I love how that's an acceptable dream to have. It's not everyday that you see a hen whose entire existence is about swimming upstream. Rarer still, is for such a hen to have an 'everyday dream' to be a mother. Wherever I have read about this book, it's been compared to Orwell's Animal Farm. I dare say that this book has more soul. It's more about her singular struggle in getting by everyday while still keeping her dream alive. I am sure this book will remind you of many such hens in your life, doing what they must to achieve their dreams--being a daughter, sister, mother, wife and colleague.
