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. Her wish is granted when pirates recruit her and her fellow chickens and whisk them away to the open seas. Soon, Lily has taken charge and becomes captain of an all-chicken crew. But when Lily faces a mutiny, will she change her ways, or be forced to squawk the plank?
"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
"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
