About the Story

'Welcome to Rome,' says Mr Chicken's guide, Federica.

'Climb aboard my Vespa and hold on to your hat.'

Mr Chicken's childhood dream is about to begin...

Join Mr Chicken (or as he's known in Rome, Signor Pollo) on his latest travelling adventure as he experiences all the cultural delights of Italy's capital city, Rome. 

You'll visit the magnifico historical sites of the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and Il Colosseo,  then sample the many delicioso delights of Italian cuisine from gelato to pasta alla papalina!

Leigh Hobbs' story and illustrations are as equally charming and simple as they are humorous and engaging. 

Read delightfully by comedian and born storyteller Scott Edgar, Mr Chicken arriva a Roma is another triumph from Australia's Children's Laureate (2016/17), Leigh Hobbs.
