The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is an incredibly magical, beautiful but emotional read that through pictures and text tells the story of a young child helping an injured bird. The underlying theme is very much about showing that a little bit of kindness goes a long way. It’s a book we believe will become a timeless classic and one that will be enjoyed by young and old alike.

Synopsis

The Girl With The Broken Wing by Heather Dyer

This is a sweet and funny story about an unruly angel! The twins are in bed when it happens. They hear a sound like a wet cabbage hitting the wall, then a clattering on the roof tiles, followed a little later by a tapping at the window. It's a girl with a broken wing - and she's come to stay. Who is she? Where has she come from? And more importantly, what does she want? The twins have no idea. Perhaps she's their guardian angel? But would an angel have filthy feet and snore?

About the Author

Heather Dyer on Heather Dyer

Why did you begin writing/illustrating?

I first began writing when I was seven. Then, I was trying to copy Enid Blyton. I loved the feeling of being in another world when I was reading her books, and when I’d read them all I started to write my own story in the same world, so that I could carry on being there. I copied her style, as well.
I think I still write to try and make a world that other people can get inside.

How would you describe your books?

So far, my books have all started out with an ordinary person who soon meets someone quite peculiar. That person might be someone like Eliza Flot, who looks like a girl from the waist up, but has a tail like a fish (The Fish in Room 11). Or Hilary in The Girl with the Broken Wing, who can fly. Or Ernest – an old man who finds something rather extraordinary hiding in a cake.
I hope that when people read my books they feel like they’re in another world, quite like this one but just a little bit magical. I hope that they can see everything like a movie in their head. Some bits might make them laugh, as well.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
