Impeccable Petunia by Katie Christine

Petunia just wants to be left alone to tend her flower garden.  She loves beautiful things and sees the simplicity and joy in almost everything.  She knows that she's a bit different then the other hens, but it doesn't bother her.

When she sees a woman sobbing and throwing bits of colored paper in the air, Petunia is intrigued.  Even more so when the woman, who is later known as Silkie, asks Petunia for her help in choosing a paint color from the swatches.  Petunia is delighted and the woman picks up Petunia and takes her in the house - unheard of! The other chickens watch in dismay to see if Petunia will come back out or be the woman's dinner.

Petunia and Silkie begin a friendship that delights them.  When Macy the cat finds Petunia won't back down against his violent demands, they start a grudging friendship, much to the dismay of the other hens.  

With beautiful illustrations and many elements of relationships, how to be yourself and that curiosity can be a good thing, Impeccable Petunia is a delightful tale for all ages! I can't wait to see what Petunia gets up to next - a grand adventure with great characters and an entertaining storyline.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
