Staff Reviews

Mavis is a scared chicken who likes to knit (sounds like me). This heartwarming story has a bit of everything—rhyming words, animal noises, a goggle-wearing chicken driving a tractor, that one wacky aunt we all have, and so much more! I absolutely love what Mavis teaches us about ourselves: ”There’s a bright spark of braveness inside us all.” P.S. Make sure to act out all the sounds to obtain maximum giggles! 

— Taylor


This is a laugh out loud story about a bonnet wearing, would-rather-be-knitting chicken who embarks on a high stakes chase to save her friend, Sandra the sheep.

Mavis is not like her adventurous friend Marge. Mavis is a chicken who finds EVERYTHING scary (night-time and daytime and anything hairy!). So when the slumbering peace of their cozy barn is disturbed by someone trying to steal their friend Sandra the sheep, will Mavis be able to find her bright spark of braveness and save Sandra?

With a tractor, a lasso, and a lot of hen-durance, Mavis might just have what it takes to be the hero the barn needs.
