Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer
Ages 8 and up. Twelve-year-old Sophie and her parents move from Los Angeles to the farm they've inherited from a great-uncle. When a cranky chicken appears, Sophie discovers the hen can move objects with the power of her little chicken brain. As more of her great-uncle's unusual chickens come home to roost, Sophie learns to care for the flock. And when a local farmer tries to steal them, Sophie must find a way to keep them (and their superpowers) safe.
