A bold and beautifully-built adventure, The House with Chicken Legs is enticing, a little bit dangerous, and thrumming with possibilities. –Kiran Millwood Hargrave

Stunningly told and superbly written this has to be one of the most accomplished debuts I have had the pleasure to read. A truly unforgettable story that will stay with me forever.– Book Lover Jo

Utterly magical and highly original… had me reading late into the night. –The Bookseller, Children’s Book of the Month

About the Author

Sophie Anderson grew up with stories in her blood, from her mother, who is a writer, to her Prussian grandmother, whose own storytelling inspired The House with Chicken Legs.

Sophie Anderson grew up in Swansea, studied at Liverpool University, and has worked as a geologist and science teacher in several parts of the UK. She wrote textbooks until characters from Slavic fairy tales began appearing in her work.

Sophie has an international family and loves to write stories inspired by different folklores, cultures, and landscapes. Her dream is to create books that help children to explore the world and fall in love with its beautiful diversity.

Now living in the Lake District with her teacher and photographer husband, Sophie enjoys the freedom of home schooling her three children, walking, canoeing, and daydreaming.
