About the Author
Praise For Peggy: A Brave Chicken on a Big Adventure…
* "A charmer of a chicken. . . Here's hoping that Peggy has many more big adventures."
—Kirkus, starred review
* "Walker’s ink and photo collage illustrations are dreamlike in appearance. Admirers of Janet Morgan Stoeke’s “Minerva Louise” books (Dutton) will relish the chance to meet another charming chicken."
—School Library Journal, starred review
"The subtle color palaette remains constant, regardless of Peggy's surroundings, exuding a calm throughout that is emulated by the varied illustration formats, the text, and Peggy herself."
—Horn Book Magazine
"Walker creates a gorgeous, rain-washed cityscape, inhabited by anonymous figures in muted colors and photo-collaged images of passing buildings; the lone chicken, walking confidently within the crowd, receives only casual attention."
