Mr Chicken Arriva a Roma

Leigh Hobbs
NZD $27.99

Mr Chicken has been to Paris and London, but his taste for travel is insatiable - now it's time to visit Rome, a city of ancient wonders and delicious things to eat. From the hilarious mind of the 2016-2017 Australian Children's Laureate.

'Welcome to Rome,' says Mr Chicken's guide, Federica.

'Climb aboard my Vespa and hold on to your hat.'

Mr Chicken's childhood dream is about to begin...

Another triumph from the Australian Children's Laureate, acclaimed creator of Mr Chicken Goes to Paris and Mr Chicken Lands on London.
