Hungry is a sequel to The Voyage, which received great reviews, and has been translated to several languages. In The Voyage a small duck finds itself in a place full of unusual creatures who speak an unfamiliar language. Eventually, it meets an animal whose big feet are a bit like its own. And with a friend by its side, the small duck soon can feel at home.
In Hungry we meet the same protagonist, a duck living a quiet life in the woods. After playing with her friends, she takes a break to enjoy a delicious lunch. But suddenly a group of hungry ants intervene in her lunch break. They want her to share some of her very tasty and precious food. As an animal fable this story might have a wide interpretation. The theme is about sharing, but it is up to the reader whether it is about sharing candies or the world’s resources.
