Author and chicken fanatic

Jan Brett's books have sold 35 million copies, but a stack of books is not what she unloads from the hatchback of her car at the American Bantam Association National Meet -- it's a trio of prizewinning Polish chickens. Brett, one of the nation's foremost author-illustrator of children's books, is a chicken fanatic and the winner of many awards for her fancy fowl.
Best known for her Ukrainian folktale, The Mitten, featuring a mole, rabbit, badger, bear, and a tiny brown mouse, Brett now incorporates chickens into many of her beloved books.
