BRIAN YANISH introducing and signing his new book for children PIRATE CHICKENS: ALL HENS ON DECK a hilarious picture book about pirate chickens and their feared and feathered leader Redfoot! Lily is no ordinary chicken. She dreams of a life off the farm where she can put her grand plans into action.

But when Lily faces a mutiny, will she change her ways, or be forced to squawk the plank?

Review Quotes:

"This band of merry swashclucklers shows that a sense of curiosity and willingness to learn can give you the tools you need to conquer any situation. Even mutiny." - Kirkus

Review Quotes:

"It's an amusing spoof with an unstoppable feathered force at its center, and high-spirited cartoons by Pauwels (Whobert Whover, Owl Detective) offer all the requisite visual nudges for it-his chickens look quite dashing in their pirate gear." - Publishers Weekly
