Peggy: A Brave Chicken on a Big Adventure (Hardcover)
A simple but exciting story of a chicken who gets swept away in the breeze and unexpectedly lands in the big city. The gorgeous illustrations really carry the story while we watch Peggy navigate the many legs and interesting objects found in the city. It is fun to spot Peggy sitting on heads and hopping on the train as her adventure unfolds.— From 2014's great picture books to read aloud
About the Author
* "A charmer of a chicken. . . Here's hoping that Peggy has many more big adventures."
—Kirkus, starred review
* "Walker’s ink and photo collage illustrations are dreamlike in appearance. Admirers of Janet Morgan Stoeke’s “Minerva Louise” books (Dutton) will relish the chance to meet another charming chicken."
—School Library Journal, starred review
"The subtle color palaette remains constant, regardless of Peggy's surroundings, exuding a calm throughout that is emulated by the varied illustration formats, the text, and Peggy herself."
—Horn Book Magazine
"Walker creates a gorgeous, rain-washed cityscape, inhabited by anonymous figures in muted colors and photo-collaged images of passing buildings; the lone chicken, walking confidently within the crowd, receives only casual attention."
