Item description for Four Hens and a Rooster by Lena Landstrom...

Four hens live on a chicken farm. A little rooster lives there, too. "What a nice little rooster you have here," everyone says when they come to visit. Indeed, it seems so for a while. But then the rooster begins to take more food for himself, and the hens get less. When the hens try talking to him about fairness, they're not prepared for his reaction. The rooster turns into an egotistical barnyard bully, and the hens are worse off than before. Finally, the oldest hen puts her foot down: "We can't go on like this. We must do something."

Expressive and witty illustrations give lots of pluck to this hilarious barnyard tale from Sweden's most beloved husband-and-wife duo.

Reviews - What do customers think about Four Hens and a Rooster?

delightful and goofy take on gender and chickens  Dec 9, 2007
This book had the whole family giggling. The hens contain their rooster's bullying tendancies. They attend a women's empowerment workshop to give them the skills they need. Balance is restored and harmony prevails.
Poultry in desperate need of psychiatric evaluation  Oct 28, 2005
A shrimpy rooster so self centered and selfish (It apparently did not even occur to him to produce chicks.) would have, in real life, been Sunday dinner. The Landstrom fowl fixated upon his chow and projects, as if he were personally descended from kings. And, like a real king, the diminutive dictator took even more when the hens protested. But, after a bus trip and self esteem classes, the four hens managed to face down the little feathered twerp, and gain, not the respect they deserved, but, at least, the appropriate rations. (I always wonder about things like how the hens financed their little expedition.)
The storytelling engineer might wish to explain to the little charges how the new and improved rooster was still not a great role model. Oh, well... Actually, the book might be used to discuss how families might be run in a more respectable manner.
Anyhow, the art gets a five and the story a three. Readers wishing to see more great art with an adequate story might wish to read Barbo Lindgren's book "Benny and the Binky," illustrated by Olof Landstrom.
