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; the brave little chicken goes on an adventure through the streets of Melbourne.
