Can you imagine a pet “house-hen” who thought she was actually a person—and was snubbed by the other chicks in the yard? What about waking up with a biddy in your bed? Or finding a chicken lollygagging in your laundry? 
Young readers will delight in finding out how a chicken came to live in a farm house with a family—and how they discovered their beloved Edward Glenn was really a hen!  
And what about that curious name?
“Again! Again,” is a common request from youngsters after hearing this heart-warming story, based on actual events that occurred in the author’s family in rural North Carolina in the 1920s. In addition to important life lessons about tolerance and acceptance, the tale gives today’s children a glimpse of life when their great-grandparents were kids. Edward Glenn is sure to be a family favorite!
