Le Roi et la poule

The King and the chicken

My first book – and therefore somewhat of a favorite! 
The King decides to take a walk with his inseparable friend Susy, the chicken. Because it starts to rain, he puts her on his kingly head as a kind of hat. The chicken enjoys the view but very soon a problem arises. “Your majesty,” she says in a timid voice, “I believe I’m about to lay an egg…”
