The Lovereading4Kids comment

April 2016 Debut of the Month A parade of brightly coloured birds strut, fly and peck their way across the pages. Some are familiar, some fantastical, but they all look fabulous in psychedelic colours and patterns. The design is equally stylish, mirroring what the birds are doing – you’ll need to turn the book on its side for example to read about the bird that’s incredibly tall. Children will soon have the bouncy rhyming text off by heart – ‘some birds waddle, some birds hop/and some birds eat worms until they go pop’ – and it offers opportunities to examine concepts, actions, and the nature of birds – one spread of a downcast bird in a cage is followed by a glorious image of a swift soaring off into the top corner and away. Stylish, irresistible fun for all. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Matt Spink

Matt Spink is an author and illustrator who loves to doodle and lives by the sea. He also runs a busy creative department at a leading advertising company in London, and to top that off has three young children, who are his main inspiration. He has pile upon pile of kid's books stacked up around his house and probably enjoys reading them more than his daughters! His love of great design and doodling birds helped him to create Some Birds, his debut picture book. Matt plays rhythm guitar in his band and throws pots on a potter's wheel, as he studied ceramics at university.
