    1. Gorgeous illustrations in this children s book A great little fairy tale that was unfamiliar to me This Russian tale gives a nice little insight into some differences in cultures.

    2. Black Chicken or Underground Inhabitants is a book by Anatolii Pogorelskii This book is probably one of the most sad and touching tales for children in Russian literature, and even though it was written a long time ago in 1829, magical and mysterious plot about a little boy Alex and his favorite black chicken until today conquers hearts of little kids and their parents The ending of the story is very sad and real that s why this book captures attention of both auditories little kids and their pa [...]

    3. The first book for children in Russian literature leads us into the world of a alleged kingdom in the backyard Lovely, indeed.

    4. Vem har sagt att barnb cker ska vara l ttsm lta och glada Var beredd p att f ditt hj rta krossat Som liten gr t jag ver tecknade filmen gjort p boken, som n got st rre, g mde jag mig f r att kunna b la i fred efter bokl sningen.

    5.

    6. Based on a Russian story, this is a morality tale where the story itself predominates, as do the imaginative illustrations, and the moral is embodied in the story rather than being thrust at the reader The fantastic underground, with its inhabitants that have counterparts above ground, adds a rich layer to the story.

    7. I would have put four stars, but the fact that a male chicken is being referred to over and over again as a hen really annoyed me It is probably because it was originally a Russian story and it was translated poorly The Little Black Chicken is a good story.

    8. This is not a Disney fairytale All does not work out beautifully for everyone but it works out well and consequences aren t skipped and happiness is found in growth.All from a Russian folk tale about a little black hen.

    9. Growing up in Ukraine I had a vinyl recording of this book, which did not stop me from re reading the paper copy a bunch of times.
