This third Bed and Biscuit book is darker than the others. "Magic chicken" Malicia pulls a number of mean-spirited tricks. Ernest, valiant mini-pig, leads the gang in stopping her. There's some didacticism in the message about standing up to a bully (the magical elements add some confusion), and the animals' plan to fight back seems rather cruel. Black-and-white illustrations add levity.

In the funniest episode yet, the animals take on an evil chicken named Malicia. Can they convince Grampa that she’s up to no good before it’s too late?

When a tiny, ornery chicken named Malicia shows up at the Bed and Biscuit animal boardinghouse, Ernest the mini-pig is determined to put aside his dislike for chickens and be a good host. But Malicia is no ordinary chicken: she’s magic! Worse, she seems to enjoy using her evil magic to make the animals miserable. Together with Gabby the mynah bird, Milly the cat, and Sir Walter the Scottish terrier, Ernest must find a way to show Grampa what a bully Malicia is — before she does something truly terrible.
