About the Story

Have you ever known a chicken to jump on a trampoline, take train trips to the city, eat spaghetti and meatballs, and shop for underwear at bargain sales?

Meet Peggy, an adventurous and playful Bantam Hen who enjoys all of these activities.  Day in and day out, Peggy eats breakfast, plays in her yard and watches the pigeons. Until one day, she is picked up by a gust of wind and plonked in the middle of a busy city. 

The charming Clare Bowditch, musician and songwriter, reads Anna Walker’s delightful tale.  A match made in heaven.
