Product Description


'... will appreciate how the wisdom of the Reachfar grandmother and Janet's sense and spirit have transferred to this picture/ story book which tells how the child ventures beyond bounds for the sake of a snowbound sheep and lamb. Mairi Hedderwick's delicately tinted Scottish hill scenes and interiors show with equal skill, weather, action and personality.'

5.0 out of 5 stars How Janet Reachfar saves Chickabird. 31 Mar 2002
By A Customer
The consequences of not controlling her fiery temper are made horribly clear to Janet Reachfar, a little Scottish girl growing up on a remote highland farm, when one of the chickens she is looking after is injured in an accident. This delightful and thoughtful story tells of her struggle to make amends. Beautifully illustrated by Mairi Hedderwick, this book has just as much appeal today as it did when first published in 1978.
