Mr Chicken All Over Australia

Mr Chicken gets lots and lots of letters pleading with him to visit Australia, and can't resist setting off on another adventure!

There are so many things to see and do in Australia, and Mr Chicken can't wait to go everywhere, see everything and meet everyone.

Luckily, a helpful marsupial from Tourist Information helps Mr Chicken organise his hectic itinerary.

Inspired by author/illustrator Leigh Hobbs' time as Australian Children's Laureate, Mr Chicken All Over Australia is dedicated to the kids, librarians and teachers Leigh met as he criss-crossed his way all over Australia. 

You can hear from Leigh in the More videos' section on this page about Mr Chicken's latest adventure and the inspiration behind the story; and from Noni about our Australian Children's Laureate seriesher iconic 2016 Logies speech, her thoughts on being a performer and her time with Play School, and the importance of reading, books and stories to her family.
