The Pearl Thief
by Axel Scheffler
How does the grey chicken turn into a beautifully glittering guinea fowl? Axel Scheffler’s enchanting artwork depicts the story of a fable packed with adventure: When Peacock employs the little chicken in his shop, he’s blissfully unaware of the chaos that’s about to ensue: a royal visit, petty theft, a hunt for a robber and a sudden burst of glamour and fame in the morning! And there’s a radiant happy end for the chicken, too.
