Mr Chicken Goes To Mars


Guaranteed to bring a chuckle to every reader, this book by our very own past
Children’s Laureate and celebrated, multiple award-winner Leigh Hobbs, is an
absolute delight. 

Having been
to Paris, London, Rome, Australia and almost everywhere else in the whole
entire world, Mr Chicken decides it’s time for something new. He will go on an
interplanetary adventure to Mars.


And what an adventure he has! From a rocket that’s purpose-built by Boris
(complete with spotted doona and little lunch table), to stopping en route at a
space station for lunch and meeting a Martian mid-flight, Mr Chicken is very
busy.

Told in
inimitable Hobbs style with stupendous Hobbs illustrations, this wacky
adventure book is really something! In fact, it’s many things. The endpapers
require a lot of (wonderful) looking at, and the inky black of outer space is a
welcome contrast from the crazy vibrant yellow and scribble that are the
hallmark of Mr Chicken.

Fun, funny,
intriguing, compelling and utterly magnificent, Mr Chicken Goes To Mars is the
ultimate adventure.

Between
naps, of course.
 

Highly
recommended.
