Reviews

* "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."
--Publishers Weekly
