More About This Title The Pearl Thief


How does the grey chicken turn into a beautifully glittering guinea fowl? Axel Scheffler’s enchanting artwork depicts the story of a fable packed with adventure:

The little chicken dreams of working in Peacocks pearl shop, all these glittering pearls are reason enough to be happy all day. When Peacock employs the little chicken, he’s blissfully unaware of the chaos that’s about to ensue: a royal visit, petty theft, a hunt for a robber and a sudden burst of glamour and fame in the morning! And there’s a radiant happy end for the chicken, too.
