Runtamuffin…. is a cute little chicken that learns quickly that people are it’s friends, and that thought carries Runtamuffin throughout her entire life. This fun picture book for children captures life in a barnyard, while teaching important truths to it’s readers.
Imagine you want to give someone a gift unique to them, what would it be?
In Lasse’s case….he wanted to be a farmer…the gift, just for him…chickens! Oh my the girls had fun in making this gift special for him. You could sense the delight they had in the creating, and their love for him.
And so starts the story of Runtamuffin and her adventures. She learned to trust her humans, she learned to trust the other animals, to count on their aid, and they in turn learned to count on her. Tales of adventure awaited little Runtamuffin.
It’s a nice story for youngsters, the font making it one to read along side a child as opposed to reading to a group of children.
The illustrations are full colour and give many talking points, such as why a chicken might sit on the back of a horse, how they might learn which horses were safe to visit and which were not, and the joy of listening to a well told story.

It was a cute story, seeing all the farm animals, the protective dog, the newest arrival and the curiousity among the chickens and the boldness of Runtamuffin. Nicely told.
