About the Story

Wendy doesn't want to be just any old chicken.
She wants ADVENTURE.
She wants EXCITEMENT.
She wants TO BE A STAR!
And then a travelling circus comes to town . . . .

Join author/illustrator Gus Gordon to find out if Wendy is lured by the bright lights and glamour that celebrity life offers? Will she choose the excitement of a travelling circus or the contentment of life on a peaceful farm?

What would you choose?

Wendy is the perfect story for adventure (and chicken!) lovers everywhere.
