Timid and shy, Gracie stayed mostly to herself and away from the other young chicks. Without her best friend, Bessie, she may never have survived those difficult first weeks. But from the beginning, Gracie was sure her new backyard garden home was "A Most Wondrous Place," and that was one of the first things she said to the author as they sat together in the cool of the evening.

But A Most Wondrous Place is more than a garden filled with beautiful flowers and delicious vegetables. It is more than somewhere that chickens can dance ballet and talk with people who love them. Even though Gracie could share a great deal of chicken wisdom with the author, explaining what A Most Wondrous Place means is simply something she could not do because it is only understood with the heart.

Journey with Gracie and the author through a single year and learn how a group of chickens became a family of friends. You will also find scattered throughout are bits of "chicken wisdom." Some are easy to spot, and others may need some scratching and pecking to find. Most importantly, you will also discover along with the author what chickens mean when they say, "This is A Most Wondrous Place."

Based on the author's experiences with raising his own backyard chickens, this book will hopefully have you saying, "I now have A Most Wondrous Place."

About the Author

John Spiers is a writer, artist, and guardian to a small flock of chickens who live in the center of his backyard garden. While he often produced small writing and drawing projects over the years, he never found his creative purpose until he decided to raise some baby chicks. They became the characters in his stories and the subjects of his drawings. His work seeks to share the same joy he feels when spending time with his chickens along with bits of "chicken wisdom" about life which he has learned from them.
