Book Review: Peggy by Anna Walker - Reviewed by RomiS (23 Jun 2014)
A whimsical story... A remarkably resilient and playful hen... And set in my own home town of Melbourne. I couldn't resist exploring the delights of this gorgeous book, and kids will immediately be drawn to it, too!
In the comfort of her little home in the quiet suburbs we meet this sweet, black Bantam Hen called Peggy. Throughout the seasons, day in, day out, Peggy never fails to go about her daily routine of eating breakfast from a bowl, dancing, playing, bouncing on the trampoline in the yard and watching the pigeons. This is so cleverly and humorously depicted simply with snapshot images spread across the pages.
Already giggling? The adventure has only just begun!
Peggy is unexpectedly carried away by a big gust of wind and plopped down into the hustle and bustle of the busy Melbourne city. Anna Walker has beautifully illustrated the rainy streets with a sea of umbrellas and the sweeping of walking feet in natural watercolours.
From here we watch as Peggy makes the best of an unusual situation and curiously discovers new and wonderous things, as seen in Walker's paintings and photo collages. As Peggy is reminded of things from home, she wishes to return to where she truly belongs.
It is through courage and initiative that Peggy makes her way back home safely. And with a newfound friendship with the pigeons, life in her backyard is back to normal... except for one new occasional adventure!
This light hearted story about a brave and lovable character, that subtly integrates important topics such as friendship, safety and resourcefulness, paired with the just-as-sweet artwork, is one to warm your heart.
