Mei Mei has the six happiest hens in China. She gives them fresh hay and baths, and when she calls to them, Gu-gu-gu-gu-gu! they all run to her as fast as they can. But one of the hens, Daisy was not always so happy. She was the smallest and the other hens used to pick on her, flapping their wings, squawking and pecking. Then one night, Daisy was asleep in a basket when it drifted out onto the river. She woke up facing a barking dog, and suddenly Daisy was doing some pecking, squawking and wing-flapping of her own! And this was only the beginning!
