A playful folktale about a very bold little boy—illustrated by beloved artist Jane Ray.
One day, a bold boy entrusts an old woman to look after his pea.
But when the old woman’s speckled hen eats the pea, the bold boy declares the hen is rightfully his! What happens when the bold boy entrusts an old man to look after the speckled hen—and a curious pig frightens the hen away, and a donkey scares off the pig—where will it all end? Jane Ray’s stunning artwork illuminates Malachy Doyle’s delightful folktale for the very young.
