Review: Peggy

Peggy is the story of a brave chicken on a big adventure.

Peggy lives on a quiet street. One blustery day the wind picks Peggy up and deposits her in the busy, bustling city. The city is full of exciting new things to see and experience, but Peggy wonders how she will ever find her way home again.

This gorgeous book is a whimsical story about the excitement of new things and the comfort of the familiar.  Filled with Anna Walker’s beautiful ink and photo collage illustrations, Peggy is a sweet story to read with preschoolers.

A short animated trailer for Peggy can be viewed on YouTube.
