Written and Illustrated by Lori Taylor
Tween explorer Holly Wild discovers that the family pet and Hayfields school mascot and good luck charm Marilla the three-legged hen has gone missing, and just before their big homecoming game. Along the way she learns that rural development is a far greater threat to her missing hen than coyotes, hawks, and cats as she turns to the urban wild of Detroit for clues.
