Saw this for the so called "bishounen Ducks" in this movie. Ended up with one of the sweetest protagonists ever and basically made her & the main antagonist the two sides of the same coin(SPOILERS): a mother who would do what they can for the sake of their babies. Also the original, uncut ending made me piss tears from my eyes 😭😭😭 Oh btw this is an Korean animation which is based on a novel. #thehenwhodreamedshecouldfly #leafieahenintothewild #dontmindme #ijustcryaboutanimatedanimals

Based on the book "The hen who dreamed she could fly" by Sun-Mi Hwang. #inktober #inktober2018 #artistsoninstagram #thehenwhodreamedshecouldfly

Known as the “Korean Charlotte’s Web”, The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly is a beautiful and unexpectedly charming book, about the life of Sprout the laying hen, and her desperate dream to hatch an egg of her own.

This one really took me by surprise. On more than one occasion I had to swallow a lump in my throat, and steady my voice, to continue reading aloud.
For such a simple little farmyard story, it has layers upon layers of depth and meaning. Love, dreams, hope, struggle, sacrifice and sadness, it has it all.

This is a book for EVERYONE.
My only disclaimer would be to those who have suffered greatly with the longing to be a mother, you may find the first couple of chapters particularly difficult.

Even the Author’s story is moving - as a girl growing up in South Korea, she couldn’t afford to attend school for several years, but a kindly teacher gave her a key to the school, so she could sneak in and read books.

Starting and finishing a book in a day is so satisfying, especially when it’s one as moving and beautiful as this.

Good Morning, booknooks. ⛅
It's finally Friday but it's a day full of responsibilities for me. Can't wait for the weekend when I can finally relax. 😅
What are you up to? 😊
As for the book...I can't say I hated it but I can't say I loved it either. Even if it was a short book, I thought it was a little bit slow paced. I understand that it was an allegory and I liked the message behind the story. I guess I'm not into that kind of stories. 😒

Day 3 of #allthebooksoct18 is books and leaves 🍂🍁
I've been reading more Asian Literature lately and have been finding new favourites 💜 There's not much translated korean literature in the market now, so I hope there will be more in the future!

Some nights are peaceful nights at the staff quarters with a book in hand and a warm mug of Milo

So happy to find this book at our town's book store as one of the "Staff Pick". It is so funny that I watched Korean TV show (방구석 1열) this morning and the author of this book was appeared on! #thehenwhodreamedshecouldfly #마당을나온암탉 #황선미 #sunmihwang .
요즘 빼놓지 않고 챙겨보는 방구석 1열에 황선미 작가님이 패널로 나왔던데...서점 가서 이 책을 찾고는 저절로 체크아웃을...ㅋㅋ 해피 프라이데이!!

"This odd, sad, beautiful little book found its way deep inside my consciousness, and I don't know if it will ever leave.

We went to a lovely exhibition at Mottisfont National Trust today all about children’s author Judith Kerr and her most famous book ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. Whilst there I bought myself a copy of the first in her Out of the Hitler Time trilogy ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit’. It got me thinking about all those fantastic children’s books that are great to also read as an adult. Books that transcend age groups; inspiring reads for every generation. Here’s my stack of books I own that I think do that. They can be read by an adult or a child. Read again and again and again throughout your life and bring different revelations each time. Can you think of any other books like this? Ageless and unique? Do let me know in the comments below ☺️
P.S I also found out today that Judith is 93 and still working on 2 books and touring book festivals etc😱 what an absolute legend!

#2018readinglist Another joint that @mithikajega and I read together. This was a very quick read, very allegorical and Aesop fable-like. It basically follows a duck named Sprout who desperately wants to be a mother, but faces death due to old age and the fact she can't make eggs on her own. She escapes and makes friends with a duck when tragedy strikes and she eventually adopts a duck egg and hatches it. The joy is short-lived though when she has to contend with a murderous weasel that puts her and her son in danger. The book is an emotional read in that you want to see Sprout and her son win, but if you're looking for complexity it a long read, this isn't it for you. If you want something short, sweet, simple, yet strong, this is it. #books #book #bookstagram #bookshelf #bookworm #readers #readersofig #reader #thehenwhodreamedshecouldfly #sunmihwang #hwangsunmi

قرار بود کتاب بعدی که درباره اش می نویسم کتاب سخنان و نوشته های مائو ( کتاب کوچک قرمز) باشه... با این حال قسمت این بود که این کتاب رو بخونم...کتابی پر از فداکاری های مادرانه که روی تلاش برای بقا و تحمل سختی ها تمرکز کرده بود...صادقانه میتونم بگم با وجود روایت داستانی خوب نویسنده جذبش نشدم...به طرز عجیبی اغراق شده بود و این سوال برام پیش اومد که اگه جورج اورول قلعه حیوانات رو ننوشته بود باز هم تعداد داستان های استعاری با شخصیت های حیوانی این همه زیاد میشد؟؟؟؟!!!!
🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔🐔 پ.ن : کماکان از مترجمین محترم میخوام که وقتی کتابی رو ترجمه میکنن به اسم افراد...مکان ها و رویدادها توجه کنند...گرچه این کتاب مشکل این چنینی زیادی نداشت چون شخصیت ها انسان نبودند ولی نام نویسنده صحیح نیست...درسته که خود کره ای ها هم حرف آ رو سریع تلفظ میکنند که شبیه اُ میشه ولی او نیست... اسم نویسنده هوانگ سان می هستش نه هوانگ سون می...😐 ماشالا این روزا انقدر تعداد دانشجوها و زبان آموزهای کره ای و چینی و ژاپنی زیاده که جایی برای همچین اشتباهاتی باقی نمی مونه... #TheHenWhoDreamedSheCouldFly #황선미 #소설 #한국작가님 #책 #책읽는사람
