Queenie the Bantam

By Bob Graham

This warm, funny, beautiful book is about change and adaptation to change.

Caitlin and her parents rescue a hen from a lake, name her, and take her home with them, but even after they return her to the farm where she lives, her presence is still felt in Caitlin's family.

  • Action and movement, excitement, suspense and not a single duff picture.
  • Graham's witty, deftly expressive pen and wash illustrations amplify his understated text with movement, expression, and feelings admirably conveyed.
