Helping Hen




Helping Hen is a concertina board book about a hen who is lured out of the coop by a sly fox. When the hen is about to meet her terrible fate, (as wespread and turn the book), the figure of the farmer appears and scares thefox away.

When the book is closed it’s a hen, when it is open it’s a farmer - this book challenges the established formats to achieve an interactive and playful experience. The book explores not only this transformative nature of the object, but also the possibilities of multi-layered illustrations with the overlapping different levels of the concertina pages.

The back of the book is a celebration of patterns and colors with some “look and find” games.
