Comments for Peter Hatches an Egg

Waiting for the BarbariansPeter Hatches an Egg: 12/01/08

Sometimes I think the hardest books to review are the ones I've read multiple times. Peter Hatches an Egg by Louise Bienvenu-Brialmont is one of those book. I was a childhood favorite, one I've had since I was Harriet's age and now I'm reading it to her.

Peter, a bunny, ends up hatching a chicken egg. He is brought to the family farm by a girl named Vivian. As he is so young he's put in the hen house to stay warm. Of course rabbits grow up quickly and he soon wants a place of his own. He digs a warren outside of the coop and that's where the egg hatching happens.

Peter Hatches an Egg was translated by George Smith. I'm guessing it was originally written in French but I can't find much on the author. As a child Peter Hatches an Egg was just one of those magical books. It was on my short list of books I was constantly asking my family to read to me. Others on the list included the Harold and the Purple Crayon books, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and The Friendly Book. Harriet thinks the book is cute but it's not on her short list.
