"The Little Pumpkin Hen is inspired by the Grimm Brother’s tale, The Death of the Little Hen. It is a story about selfishness where characters continually meet their death because of their refusal to help those around them.
Gretshelle Rivera’s tamer version of the Grimm’s tale focuses on misdirected aggression and frustration towards people due to prior failures in social interaction. The story is about the little hen coming to terms with vulnerability, but then ultimately allowing herself to get the help she needs and be secure enough to allow others to help her.”
Heyo- wanted to update everyone on my recently completed children’s book The Little Pumpkin Hen. A little while back I announced it was finished, I am now able to publish it.
I will start off with the digital format sold on gumroad then later sell it on my storenvy in a convenient 5.5x8.5” sized book-form. I will also be posting the story on my portfolio (is WIP) later this month or so, if you would rather not pay for the digital version. However, every little bit helps support me creating more work like this and make other physical merch you may like (possibly new stickers, postcards and keychains on the way). Thank you again to everyone for their support the past couple months, please signal boost- a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into making this.
