Magic at the Bed and Biscuit

By Joan Carris
Illustrated by Noah Z. Jones

In the third and funniest episode yet, the animals take on an evil chicken named Malicia. Can they convince Grampa that she's up to no good?

When a tiny, ornery chicken named Malicia shows up at the Bed and Biscuit animal boardinghouse, Ernest the mini-pig tries to be a good host. But Malicia is no ordinary chicken: she’s magic — and she’s trouble! Together with Gabby the mynah bird, Milly the cat, and Sir Walter the Scottish terrier, Ernest must find a way to show Grampa what a bully Malicia is, before she does something truly terrible!

  • The third book in the early reader Bed and Biscuit series now in paperback!
  • A perfect tale for animal lovers.
