Louise, the spirited chicken, longs for excitement and adventure. She leaves the hen house and ventures out into the world. Her first adventure occurs in the high seas with some dastardly pirates. She barely escapes with her feathers. Still longing for more adventure, she sets out for the BIG TENT, seeking the glamour of the circus. This adventure brings her mouth-wateringly close to the circus lion. In her third and final adventure, Louise meets an exotic fortune teller in a bustling bazaar, who sees a dark stranger in Louise’s future. What happens when she really meets the dark stranger who carries her away? Will she ever see her sister hens and warm comfy hen house again?  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2011)
