Mr Chicken has been to Paris and London and his taste for travel is insatiable so 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.

  • Chicken is the essence of chic

    by on

    Effortlessly cool and dripping with style, our jet-set favourite is back and this time he’s making a splash on the streets of Roma.

    Lapping up the Mediterranean sun on the back of a Vespa, Chicken absorbs the sights and sounds of the Colosseum, the Forum and Vatican City before retiring to the gelataria. There’s sure to be plenty of photo-ops and a spot of spaghetti trouble if he’s not on his best behaviour. Mr. Chicken is the ultimate cosmopolitan flightless bird, and his books (co-created with the wonderful Leigh Hobbs) make a delightful introduction to travel writing for the infantile reader.
