omlettaOmletta Hen by Janelle Wilkey, Illus. Deborah Hinde. Pub.Scholastic 2020.

A great read  aloud picture book about a hen with oodles of personality. With a name like Omletta you feel that she has survived a great fate and is determined that her own eggs will be free.

Omletta lays her eggs everywhere, in the garden, on the path, in a shoe in the bath even on top of her owner Nelson’s head. Nelson wants to put a stop to that and locks Omletta in the chicken coup.

Omletta resists. read this delightful picture book and find out what happens.

The text is rhyming and sing songee but the true star is Omletta. She has personality to burn and Deborah Hinde brings this out with her fabulous illustrations. Hens do have personality, I know as my granddaughters had a hen called Mildred and she loved to be stroked and made her nest all over the property.

This picture book won The Joy Cowley Award. Don’t miss it.
