The Wizard, the Fairy, and the Magic Chicken by Helen Lester

The Wizard, the Fairy, and the Magic Chicken each think, I am the greatest in the world. After a competition full of jealousy, boasting, and reckless spellcasting, they find themselves fleeing from hairy, bumpy, and dotty monsters! While running for their lives, the three rivals realize that they can't defeat the monsters alone, and only by working together can they counter the powerful magic. Safe at last, they can still sometimes compete - but as friends. This magical tale of friendship and teamwork is now part of a fun, value-priced hardcover series about life lessons. It includes downloadable audio and information on the importance of teamwork!


A winner for kids and adults who'll be reading it again and again. Booklist, ALA
