Winner of NAPPA Children's Resources Gold Award Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, Denmark and grew up to be the world's greatest storyteller. He is best known for hist stories The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Pea, The Ugly Duckling, The Nightingale, and The Emperor's New Clothes. His stories are loved by children everywhere. In Mus White's skillful adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's classic folk story, "There Is No Doubt About It," the news that a hen has lost a feather grows into a humorous tale of five chickens engaged in battle as the story spreads from coop to coop and from hen to hen. This new translation is faithful to the original and yet remains as fresh and appealing today as the day it was written. Stefan Czernecki's bright primary illustrations and panel design reflect the comic boldness as each chicken passes along the story, until it is no longer recognizable to the original hen who started it in the first place. For Sure For Sure is a powerful story with a strong message that both children and adults will enjoy. This retelling of an old fairytale teaches readers the importance of citizenship and trustworthiness.
