 Kurochka is the fearless heroine of Maria Polushkin’s story, THE LITTLE HEN AND THE GIANT. 

        She gets so angry at the giant for stealing all her eggs that she feels as big as a giant herself and decides to get rid of him. 

        Fox falls down laughing at her. 

        “Come here, little chickie chick chick,” roars the giant.

If you can’t find it at the library, this book is available in paperback online, and is ABSOLUTELY worth the price.


And this salad won from my family the rare notation of “Excellent!”   Not only does it taste GREAT but it’s easy to make and goes really well with Chinese food!
