Leggy Peggy: The Toucan Who Can't Until She Cancan

by Laura Albulario (Author), Abi Fraser (Illustrator)

Hardcover – out November 1, 2022

Deep in the jungle, young Peggy the toucan grows unusually long, pink legs. She’s different to the others and spends her days trying – and failing – to fit in. Things change for Peggy when she discovers the wonderful world of cancan dancing and accepts that she was born to stand out. Through jaunty rhyme, quirky, freehand digital illustrations and unique characters, Leggy Peggy shows the power of resilience, the benefits of overcoming self-doubt, and the magic of being unique.

About the Author
Laura Albulario is a Sydney-based journalist who thinks every human – and animal – has a quirky side and a story to tell. When she isn’t daydreaming about the secret lives of birds, she can be found adventuring outdoors with her husband Jonathan, their two little boys Xavier and Jonah, and a rescue dog called Oliver.

About the Illustrator
Abi Fraser developed her vibrant, personality-rich style with paint, pencil and ink beneath her fingernails. The British Sydney-based designer and illustrator has since taken her original flair into the digital realm. From national newspapers and magazines, to charity exhibitions, Abi’s illustrations have been widely published and displayed. A prolific creator, Abi always has a project in flight, which, quite often, involves a loveable bird or two.
