HOBBS, Leigh Mr Chicken Lands on London Allen & Unwin, 2014 unpaged $24.99 ISBN 9781743315927 SCIS 1666663
Brash bold and outstandingly yellow, Mr Chicken takes us on a whirlwind tour of London. From the palace and morning tea with the Queen, he hurries through an itinerary that leaves him ill by afternoon. Casting an eerie yellow glow through the face of Big Ben, his is a visit of incorrect manners and delightful grumpiness. Business as usual for the irascible Mr Chicken. Highly Recommended.
