Read full description of the books Wendy:Wendy's no ordinary chicken. She comes out of her egg with a party whistle in her mouth and is always looking for interesting things to do around the farm. When she's offered a job as a Motorcycle Stunt Chicken at a travelling circus, it's her big break. As she jumps over more and more double-decker buses, people come from everywhere to admire her. She's courted by TV hosts and autograph hunters and plans her biggest stunt ever. But will she ever return to the farm and those she holds dear?
I loved this book. Gus Gordon has also done the illustrations and there are lots of extra things in there for adults to enjoy. For example, when Wendy's in hospital, the chart at the bottom of her bed reads "Condition: Broken wishbone, ruffled feathers, slightly fried" and the signs around the circus stadium advertise such things as Miss McGinty's tinned roaches (They really stink). The illustration on the last page made me smile. Wendy is definitely not destined for an ordinary life.
Have fun reading this to the child in your life and then sneak another peek when they're not looking.
Read information about the authorGus Gordon is an internationally acclaimed illustrator and author. He has illustrated and written over 80 books for children.
His illustrations are known for their loose and energetic line work, mixed media and humour. His writing is always anthropomorphic – where animals take the place of humans in the narrative. He attributes this to his love of Kenneth Grahame's Wind in The Willows. His picture book 'Herman and Rosie' (Penguin), a musical love story set in New York, was sold at auction in New York to US publisher Neal Porter Books (Macmillan) and has since been sold into twelve countries. It has been adapted for the stage by several theatre companies, was chosen as the ‘Read for Australia’ book and won the 2013 CBCA 'Honour Award' for best picture book. It has also been shortlisted for the German Youth Literature Award, the Sakura Medal in Japan, the Kirico book awards in Spain, the Les Incorruptibles prize in France and the Premio Anderson Children's Book awards in Italy.
In 2016 Gus was nominated for the prestigious 2017 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (ALMA). It is the world's largest award for children's and young adult literature.
Gus’s latest picture book 'Somewhere Else' was recently published by Penguin Australia and is soon be released in the US with Neal Porter Books.
