Synopsis

Out for an early morning walk, Minerva Louise the hen sees a big, fancy "barn" with a flag out front and brightly decorated windows. She just has to explore the "stalls" with "milking stools," the "pigpen," and (most important for a hen) the "nesting boxes." Young children--who know a school when they see one--will delight in the intrepid hen's third birdbrained adventure.

"Delightful...Minerva Louise's goofy perceptions and enterprising spirit are sure to tickle preschoolers." --Kirkus Reviews
