From the Inside Flap

One day the girls brought home Aunt Lotta's seven chickens so she could go away to visit her sister. They took good care of the chickens. One morning, they heard a terrible cackling. A hawk was trying to catch the big red hen named Maisie!

Format: Paperback
I originally bought this book as an antidote to the princess stories my 3 and 5 year old nieces were choosing to buy. It took some convincing but after a couple of princess stories they let me read it to them. It is now one of their favorites and they request it all the time. There is just the right mix of comfort, suspense and excitement for young children. They love it and I'm relieved to be reading something besides stories of pink ponies and princesses.

As a young child this story was read to me several times. Now as an adult I find this story to be just as good. As an expectant parent I belive that I will be reading Maj Lindman's writings to my children on a regular basis. The children Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka are very helpful children in all of the books. In this particular book they help Aunt Lotta. She longs to go visit her sister but can not find anyone to take care of her 6 hens and rooster. The children ask their father and they work it out so that Aunt Lotta can visit her sister. I recommend that if you enjoy this book you look into the other Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka books. Maj Lindman also wrote many stories about three boys, named Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr. I recommend all of theese books if you liked Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and the big red hen.

It doesn't matter whether you're reading to boys or girls, they all enjoy reading about Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka, and the companion books Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr! I grew up on these wonderful stories, as did our children, and now our grandchildren. I think I've finally collected the lot, and our children and grandchildren feel as if these children are part of their circle of friends..

A neighbor introduced me to old Flicka Ricka Dicka books she had saved (favorites from her childhood) and I knew my daughter would instantly take to them. The illustrations are wonderful and the stories keep the imagination alive as you follow three, identical triplet sisters on their adventures.
