"Charming, thoughtful, and clever." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A funny and relatable realistic fantasy sure to be enjoyed by farm-dwellers, urbanites, and everyone between." --SLJ

"In the middle grade follow-up to Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer, protagonist Sophie Brown has brand-new magical chickens to care for, is anxious about entering a new school, and is doubly worried about an upcoming inspection from the Unusual Poultry Committee. Quirky illustrations and the integration of email correspondences, letters, lists, and other texts provide a multidimensional reading experience." -- Publishers Weekly
