| Minny’s Dream by Chickens’ Lib founder Clare Druce is a powerful and moving story about a young girl’s encounter with a “battery hen” named Minny, who begs her friend Paula to set her free. Should Paula help Minny and risk being arrested? Risk her parents’ wrath? Minny’s “dream” is the caged hen’s “ancestral memory” of who she really is and how she was meant to live, told in her own words. Minny’s Dream dramatizes the story of the plight of chickens from the tropical forest to the battery cage and the moral issues involved in whether to rescue or not to rescue. “Paula knows she must stand up for what she believes in, but can she succeed against the odds?”
