    Just outside of downtown Minneapolis, follow the sounds of crowing and clucking
    and you will find Mary Britton Clouse’s Chicken Run Rescue. Over the years, Mary
    and her husband have given hundreds of homeless birds a safe place to rest until they
    can be adopted by caring families.
    Each chicken has a story to share, and the debut author Christine Heppermann
    (who adopted her own chicken) has crafted a spare, moving, and at times humorous
    text that will open young readers’ eyes and also inspire to help all creatures great and
    Come along and find out why lovable chickens are actually, according to Mary, “the
    ones who need friends the most.”
