Chicken in the Kitchen Paperback
Illustrated by Mehrdokht Amini
What would you do if you woke up one night to find the shadow of a giant chicken passing your bedroom door?
Go and investigate of course! When Anyaugo follows a giant chicken into her kitchen one warm night in Nigeria, she embarks on a hilarious adventure where nothing is quite as it seems.
Is the nature spirit that lives in the wooden walls of her house a help or a hindrance?
Is the mischievous giant chicken a friend or a foe? Most importantly, will Anyaugo be able to save the food her aunties have cooked for the New Yam Festival the next day?
World Fantasy Award-winning author Nnedi Okorafor provides us with a hugely entertaining look at the fascinating masquerade culture of West Africa, told from the perspective of a plucky young Nigerian girl who finds the courage to protect the traditions she loves.
