Praise

“A delightful protagonist, interesting fowl of various breeds and a cast of appealing second-string characters make this a top pick for young readers, poultry fanciers or not.” 
Kirkus Reviews, starred review 

“Readers will cheer for Sophie and clamor for more of those amazing chickens. Exceptional, indeed.”
School Library Journal, starred review 

“Someone has finally written a real honest-to-goodness novel with chickens!  This news will excite people who like novels, people who like chickens…and chickens.  It is an unusual book!”
–Daniel Pinkwater, author of The Hoboken Chicken Emergency, and pioneer of chicken-lit.
 
“The combination of real-life emotion and otherworldly farming makes for a comedic story with the right amount of pathos.”–Booklist
