The House with Chicken Legs

The House With Chicken Legs is a great read, but I have to warn you once you start you won't be able to put it back down! 12 year old Marinka wants a friend. A real friend. Not one like her house with chicken legs. Sure, the house can play games like tag and hide-and-seek, but Marinka longs for a human companion. Someone she can talk to and share secrets with. Unfortunately that's really hard when your grandmother is a Yaga, (a guardian who guides the dead into the afterlife) It's even harder when you live in a house that walks all over the world whenever it feels like it taking you with it.

Even worse, Marinka is being trained to be a Yaga. Sadly that means no friends that stay around for more than a day. if they even do, with her house looking like a death trap.

So when Marinka finally stumbles across the chance to make a real friend, she breaks all the rules she has ever been taught leaving her with terrible consequences…
