Creepy Chicken

As we draw closer to Henny's release, the book buzz is starting to happen!

So far Henny has been referred to as--- cute, creepy, adorable, unconventional, humorous,
 weird (in a good way), and precious. . .  
but best of all:
 Henny has been selected by the American Booksellers Association as a "Kids' Indie Next List" pick!
This means a bookseller nominated Henny, then ABA members voted and selected it as a recommended book for booksellers across the country to put in their stores.
 How cool is THAT??!!

...and remember:
HENNY is available just about anywhere, but if you would like a signed copy, order through
 Secret Garden Books (in the comments section at checkout say you would like it signed). 
Oh, and if you're in Seattle, please come to Henny's launch party at the Secret Garden Bookstore on January 7th at 7p.m.  Bwwaaak!    



Remember-- support your local independent bookstores !
                          Thanks, everyone!
