Steffie Sordus and the Dino Chickens, written and illustrated by Sarah E Steinberg

150pg early middle grade science fiction graphic novel about achieving goals and adapting to the unexpected.
Steffie Sordus wants to get her classmates’ attention with a cool new pet, but the city is no place for a horse. Sure that cute baby chicks are a good compromise, Steffie studies super-cool chicken breeds and builds a coop. When Steffie arrives at the farm store, there are only three chicks left in the brooder… and they look a little odd.  They sprout razor sharp talons, and… are those teeth?  Steffie will have to keep them cared for (and cooped up) as her dinosaur chickens capture the attention of the whole neighborhood.
