The House with Chicken Legs

I was intrigued from the outset - this book is quirky and original and I loved the illustration of the house on the cover! I could just picture it romping across landscapes!

This book is a celebration of life and being alive and all the joys and experiences life has to offer. I empathised with Marinka that she was confined to the house and had to accept a future that she did not want. I also gasped at the twist in the tale half way through the book when Marinka learned of her true situation. I enjoyed the house's personality and all the tricks it could perform.

This was a very enjoyable read that celebrated the joy of being alive - our beautiful landscapes, the relationships we make with others and the love of others, animals,education and the sense of belonging to a tradition and heritage. One of the best this year!
