City Chickens

City Chickens

By:  Christine Heppermann

Also available in:
Just outside of downtown Minneapolis, follow the sounds of crowing and clucking
and you will find Mary Britton Clouse’s Chicken Run Rescue. Over the years, Mary
and her husband have given hundreds of homeless birds a safe place to rest until they
can be adopted by caring families.
Each chicken has a story to share, and the debut author Christine Heppermann
(who adopted her own chicken) has crafted a spare, moving, and at times humorous
text that will open young readers’ eyes and also inspire to help all creatures great and
small.
Come along and find out why lovable chickens are actually, according to Mary, “the
ones who need friends the most.”
