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

You wouldn’t normally think a wizard, a fairy, and a chicken would be in the same story, but if it’s a fairy tale, anything goes! This fun book tells the story of these three magical creatures, each trying to outdo the other. I saw this story performed by a storyteller, and I immediately wanted to use it with children at the library. I turned it into a readers’ theatre with simple props and costumes. The kids in my second and third grade summer club loved it! It helped them practice their reading and acting skills, too. The book is also great to just read aloud to children of all ages.
