Synopsis

Night has fallen and Hilda is late getting back to the henhouse. On her way she sees strange, mysterious shapes-a snake, a monster-lurking in the shadows. What are these creatures? Where do they go during the day? Children will soon identify the troublesome shapes as everyday objects found in the farmyard-things that can look a lot spookier at night. “The wonderful blend of folk-art illustrations and the simple but language-rich narrative makes the well-designed picture book popular fare for story times.”-Booklist

Serenely confident that she's finding birthday offerings at every turn, Hilda wreaks havoc across the farmyard, eating the horse's oats and the gardener's apples, enjoying a dust bath in the pansy patch, helping herself to tea and cookies-only to discover her real birthday treats on a poultry roost.
