Rosie’s Walk has been a much-loved classic for at least two generations. Now, nearly fifty years on, we’re delighted to see this legacy continue.

Where is Rosies ChickWhere, Oh Where, is Rosie’s Chick? is the long-awaited sequel to bestselling Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins

Rosie has lost her baby chick. She looks under the hen house.

She looks behind the wheelbarrow.

But little baby chick isn’t there.

But watch out Rosie – there’s someone following you, and it’s not just your baby chick!

The funny sequel to the much-loved and bestselling Rosie’s Walk, with the same element of danger and surprise that children so enjoy.

Pat Hutchins has illustrated and written over fifty children’s books. She won the Kate Greenaway Award in 1974, for The Wind Blew, and was shortlisted for the same award five years later for One-Eyed Jack.

Where, Oh Where, is Rosie’s Chick? is available now from Dymocks.

  2. A A Milne! When my 2 daughters and I get together we often recite (in unison) the poems from When We Were Very Young! Onlookers are amazed we know all the words to, for instance, The Kings Breakfast! Love them all!

  3. Lovely Rosie! I introduced my little grandkids to the city via Alexander Ducks adventure hopping out of his pond in the Botanic Gardens and leaving past the Boab Tree,via the gates at Wooloomooloo (a quick intro to the Art Gallery and a drink of course) then on past St Mary’s Cathedral and ending up at the Archibald Fountain. I’d love a sequel to him further down to the city as an older fellow:-)

  4. A little Golden Book called Cheltenham’ s Party was a huge favorite in our house! It was great fun. Wish they’d reprint it, never seen a copy since.

  5. My kids loved those Golden Books….we had stacks of them!
    I liked Enid Blyton’s stories….not very sophisticated! But….I did read “Water Babies” twice…but never understood the true meaning of the tale…..

  6. Lol Leone, well I still have my mums gallstone in a jar, taken out when she was 93 still have my gallstones in a jar also lol
