The Golden Hen
AND OTHER STORIES
DIANA ROSS 
  Illustrated by Gri  
Faber & Faber 1942 

"The Golden Hen is a collection of stories most of which have been broadcast. They are for children of seven to twelve or so, and are in the tradition of the folk story rather than the fantastic fairy tale, although magic and marvels are to be found within their pages. But the frightening and horrible side of the traditional tales has been carefully avoided."

"There lives an old cat, older than you, older than your father and mother, older than your granny and older than her granny, as old as the hills, and that is to say he is very old.
And he lives on a hill. He lives at the top of a round green hill under the shade of a thorn tree. He washes three times a day: once in the morning, once at noon and once again in the evening. For at these times he eats, and he washes very thoroughly after each meal.
And what does he live on - mice, rats, birds, rabbits and water?
Oh no!......"
