THE HOUSE WITH CHICKEN LEGS is a Baba Yaga re-imagining publishing in May 2018 with Usborne.

“Enticing, a little bit dangerous, and thrumming with possibilities.” 

Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Girl of Ink and Stars

Twelve-year-old Marinka dreams of a normal life, where her house stays in one place long enough for her to make friends. But her house has chicken legs and moves on without warning. The only people Marinka meets are dead, and they disappear when her grandmother, Baba Yaga, guides them through The Gate. Marinka wants to change her destiny, but her house has other ideas…

You can read the prologue at Usborne’s website here, and the book is available to pre-order from WaterstonesFoylesAmazon, or other book stores.
