Out of the Egg
Late August 2022
About the Book:
An award-winning title now translated into two new bilingual editions combining English and te reo Māori, and English and Samoan.
You think you know the tale of the Little Red Hen. You think you know how it ends. But in this story everything changes when the hard-working Red Hen lays a perfect white egg. And out of this egg comes a chick with a mind of her own . . . a beautiful book with fantastic woodcut prints and lyrical text that turns the tale of the Little Red Hen upside down.
The State Library of New South Wales has prepared learning activities using Out of the Egg - access them here.
