The Little Black HenBook - 2003
Alyosha is a good boy who, while at boarding school, saves the life of his favorite black hen. Blackey is actually an ambassador from an underground magical kingdom of little people whose king richly rewards the child with a wish. Unwisely, the boy asks to know all the answers at school without having to study, thus beginning a downward spiral of events in which he becomes arrogant and betrays the little people's secret.
