Spring has very nearly sprung - and Chicken House has some fantastic releases for you to curl up with!   


A must-read for all readers of YA, the beautiful A LITTLE IN LOVE tells the heartbreaking story of Les Misérables’ Eponine and is written by a Whitbread Award-winning author – or if you’re after something with a big dose of action, then check out the thrilling wartime adventure WINTER’S BULLET.


We’re also reissuing two of our best-loved Chicken House titles! For younger readers, we’re releasing a stunning 10th Anniversary edition of Cornelia Funke’s DRAGON RIDER, and you’ll soon also be able to get your hands on a beautiful new version of THE WOLF PRINCESS.


And of course, THE MAZE RUNNER movie has now been released! Have you read the book yet? We’d love to hear what you think – tweet us at @chickenhsebooks with your review!
