This is the story of a hen named Sprout.

An anthem for individuality and motherhood, "The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly" has captivated millions of readers in Korea, where it is a contemporary classic. Now the novel is making its way around the world, where it has the potential to inspire generations of readers the way" Jonathan Livingston Seagull" or "The Alchemist" have. And with Nomoco's evocative illustrations throughout, this first English-language edition beautifully captures the journey of an unforgettable character in world literature.
