The Toucan Who Can't, Until She Cancan
Starfish Bay Publishing Pty Ltd
OverviewDeep 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.
