Peggy: A Brave Chicken On A Big Adventure

Peggy Book CoverPeggy is a happy suburban hen. She eats breakfast, plays on her trampoline, and watches pigeons in her sunflower-filled yard until a gust of wind sends her to a bustling city far from home. She picks herself up, walks amid umbrella-holding pedestrians, and makes new discoveries in the city. However she becomes homesick when she sees a girl carrying a sunflower. She hopefully follows the girl onto a train, which does not get her home. She then spies some pigeons and follows them back home, where she eats her breakfast, plays on her trampoline, chats with the pigeons, and sometimes catches the train to the city. Clever ink, watercolor, and photo collage illustrations with detailed local Melbourne landmarks complement the quiet, delightful text. mjw
