Ami loves her chicken better than me.

She calls her Bibi, I call her silly.

Rani's mother loves Bibi the chicken more than her. At least that's what Rani thinks. That silly chicken gets all the attention, and Rani just can't stand it. Even worse, Bibi seems to know she's the favorite! But when Bibi disappears one afternoon, Rani realizes how sad her mother is. Will Rani's jealousy disappear, too?

Set in rural Pakistan and illustrated with lively, expressive illustrations, this original take on sibling rivalry is hilarious and poignant at the same time.
