Inspired by the Slavic folk tales passed down by her Prussian grandmother, Sophie Anderson’s luminous debut spins a fabulous reimagining of storytelling’s oldest legends. Marinka longs for an ordinary life but as the granddaughter of Baba Yaga she is bound to a life of spirits and a house that never stays still for long. Beautifully illustrated throughout and steeped in myth and magic, The House with Chicken Legs is a heart-filled tale that beckons curious minds to explore what lies on the furthest horizon.
Following on from Becky Albertalli’s smash-hit Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, Leah on the Offbeat charts the dramas of Simon’s BFF Leah as she grapples with changing friendships, first love, and senior year angst.
