Staff Reviews

Henny is a little different from her chicken siblings. She was born with arms. Sometimes it's fun to have the added appendages, but at other times it's difficult to fit in. Eventually though, Henny finds that she can be helpful around the farm and her arms actually come in handy (pun intended.) Just wait until you see her milking the cow!

— From Mark B.


Henny is a chick who's just a little different from everyone else in the barn--and who learns to embrace her special gift in this whimsical and charming picture book debut from Elizabeth Rose Stanton.

Henny doesn't look like any other chicken she knows. Instead of wings, she has arms

Sometimes Henny likes being different--she enjoys the way her arms flutter like ribbons when she runs--but other times...not so much. She just can't do things the same way as the other chickens.

But doing things the same as everyone else is overrated, as Henny comes to realize in this warmhearted story, sweetly told and illustrated with fresh, expressive artwork that celebrates the individual in everyone.
