The House with Chicken Legs

This is my favourite book in the shortlist! The author has the amazing ability to transport you to another place and reality. It is based on traditional myths but at the same time it is undoubtedly unique! It's just amazing! It's about a girl called Marinka who lives with her grandmother in their house. But the house has chicken legs. I love the way the house , which would usually be seen as a mere object, is personified so much that it is just as real as Marinka! I find it impossible to find any flaws with this book. It is vividly real and reduces you to tears.
