Author Nnedi Okorafor talks about the range of her work, including the award-winning Chicken in the Kitchen, published by Lantana, and the inspiration behind this book. “The story about the giant magical chicken―who shows up in the kitchen one night and is discovered by the little girl of the house―was a story I used to tell my daughter when she was very small.”
