Description

See below for English description.

Lorsqu'Izzy Pippik traverse la ville et qu'une poule tombe de son camion, la jeune Shaina fait preuve de force et d'intégrité : bien que sa famille comme toute la ville soit pauvre, elle ne laissera personne vendre les oeufs de la poule d'Izzy Pippik. Cette poule lui appartient, et il faudra la lui rendre à son retour. Lorsque les poules commencent à envahir la ville, les gens viennent de partout pour observer ce phénomène, et les habitants gagnent en prospérité. Mais qu'arrivera-t-il quand Izzy Pippik viendra reprendre ce qui lui appartient?

Young Shaina shows her strength and her integrity after a chicken falls from Izzy Pippick's truck as he drives through her town. Even though her family and the townpeople are poor, Shaina will not let anyone sell or eat the eggs from Izzy Pippick's chicken - since the chicken is his and must be saved for his return. When the town is overrun by chickens, people come from miles around to see them, which makes the town more prosperous - But what will happen when Izzy Pippick comes back to collect what is rightfuly his?

Original title: A Hen for Izzy Pippick
