Zelda's Big Adventure

Marie Alafaci, illustrated by Shane McGowan
AUD $24.99

A very funny story with an endearing and resourceful main character determined to live her dream of being the first chook in space.

Zelda has big plans - she wants to be the first chook in space. She leaves nothing to chance and packs food, fuel and a cosy nesting box. But will she make it without the help of her friends?

Great fun to read aloud, this wonderfully illustrated story shows that for a plucky chook like Zelda, the sky is never the limit.
