📖 Peggy: A Brave Chicken on a Big Adventure by Anna Walker

Read Peggy: A Brave Chicken on a Big Adventure by Anna Walker (Clarion Books)
Peggy the hen is contented with her quiet existence and daily routine. When a powerful gust of wind sweeps her up and deposits her in the midst of a busy city, she explores her new surroundings, makes new friends, and cleverly figures out how to get home—with a newly kindled appetite for adventure. Evocative full-color paintings follow Peggy’s journey, offering comical details that reward repeated viewing. This reassuring tale and its unruffled heroine invites discussions of exploration, safety, and resourcefulness.
Peggy, a chicken, is given such a lot of character by some excellent writing (including cute reveals), fantastic mixed media artwork, and a whimsical plot which was almost too sparse and short for me. I was left wanting more.

And what a great ending:
“Every day, rain or shine, Peggy ate breakfast, played in her yard, chatted with the pigeons…
and sometimes caught the train to the city.”
