Literary Lunch . . . with Henny!

Meet the star of Elizabeth Rose Stanton's new book Henny. Henny is an avarage chicken. Well, almost. There is one tiny little thing different about Henny. Have you spotted it yet?

Well . . . Henny was born with arms. Which is pretty unusual for a chicken. But Henny likes being different. And she can do lots of fun things with her arms that other chickens can't. Like eating bugs with chopsticks!

Nina's kids loved this book and this was their favorite page, so she used it for Henny's Literary Lunch inspiration!

Nina from Mamabelly's Lunches With Love made an egg-cellent lunch chock full of:
  • Fruit Booty Corn Puff Worms to eat with chopsticks
  • A Henny sunflower seed sandwich with cheese, seaweed, and carrot decorations
  • An egg (an important part of the book, but we can't give away everything now, can we?)
  • And some spinach leaves to keep those arms strong underneath all of that yummy food!


  1. Nina, this is the most bwaktacular bento EVER!

  2. Thank you! It's not every day that I get to make a lunch for a chicken with arms. It's so much easier to open the lunchbox, I bet? It was so much fun! Thank you for letting me cater today!
