A stunning picture book for older readers, this story tells the tale of Arthur, a soldier from New Zealand, and a little hen whom he finds and takes into battle. The other soldiers laugh at this odd friendship but soon see the hen as a symbol of hope as she survives in the trenches - and even lays eggs for the men.
