We are very excited to have children's author Sophie Anderson in store to sign copies of her debut novel for 9-12 year olds, The House With Chicken Legs!

'Marinka dreams of a normal life, but her house has chicken legs and moves on without warning. For Marinka's grandmother is Baba Yaga, who guides spirits between this world and the next. Marinka longs to change her destiny and sets out to break free from her grandmother's footsteps, but her house has other ideas...'

A magical story drawing on the Russian fairytales Sophie grew up with, this is the perfect novel for anyone who enjoyed The Girl of Ink and Stars or Howl's Moving Castle.
