Just recently we reviewed Anna Walker's Today We Have No Plans. Two Anna Walker books in one month? This really is a great month for new children's literature!
Welcome to the world of Peggy, adorned by Anna Walker's signature watercolour illustrations which always lift our spirits!
Peggy lives in a little house, and lives ... well ... a quiet, happy life. One particularly blustery day sees poor Peggy quite literally swept off her tiny chicken feet .. and in to what is definitely not a quiet little street.
Landing with a 'soft thud' in the middle of the city, Peggy takes it all in her stride and marvels at all the new sights and sounds. When she spots someone carrying a glimpse of home - in the shape of a glorious sunflower - Peggy is on the trail, hoping to return home ...
'Peggy watched, hopped, jumped, twirled and tasted.'
The narrative behind Peggy has a gentle, almost serene calmness to it making Peggy a perfect bedtime choice. The muted palette conveys the city scape perfectly. We particularly loved those pages filled with polaroid styled images to convey Peggy's activities across a single day.
