Summary
Overheard ... misheard ... and passed on ... but what comes back is nothing like how it began. In an era of social media, never before has this simple tale of rumour-mongering been more important. Starting with a comment a hen made while watching one of her feathers fall to the ground, a rumour begins in a henhouse on one side of the valley. She was overheard but misheard, yet her comment was passed on, which was overheard yet again by others and passed on through the bush telegraph to neighbouring henhouses, growing more exaggerated each time it was retold, until it eventually came back to the henhouse where it all started. Of course, by this time it was nothing like the original comment. It's Quite True! is a 42-page full colour illustrated children's book about the dangers of telling tales and how those tales can change in the telling. Ages 4+
