Daisy Comes Home
Daisy Comes Home by Jan Brett
This isn't a new book, but was the topic of discussion at work today. Daisy is a hen who is picked on by the other hens. She falls asleep in a basket on a rainy night and floats away down the river. She has several adventures and ends up in the clutches of a greedy fisherman who decides to sell her at market. Her owner, Mei Mei finds out and tries to save her and between the two of them, Daisy escapes and is now tougher and able to handle the other hens.
Jan Brett's illustrations are great as usual - she employs the use of the side panels to show more details and forshadow what's coming next.
