Mr Chicken is travelling again and “flying business class for the fine food and extra leg room” of course. This time Mr Chicken heads for Rome where with his guide Frederica and her Vespa he sees everything he has ever dreamt about seeing in Roma. This includes Il Colosseo, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican and he continues to dream while in Rome.
Although Mr Chicken doesn’t visit for long he does manage to eat a lot of gelato.
This book is a classic from Leigh Hobbs who is Australian Children’s Laureate for 2016 – 2017.
