Hen Hears Gossip is a rich picture book that revisits the age-old idea of passing on a story only to have it morph into something completely different the longer it's passed along. When Hen overhears Pig say something to Cow, she passes it along only to have the "gossip" morph into a whole other phrase by the time it reaches the final animal. Then Hen sets about to figure out what Pig REALLY said to Cow and what ensues is clever and oh so brightly captured in collaged illustrations. Check it out! We got it in the new book section of our library.
