The Lovereading4Kids comment

An encouraging story for all parents and toddlers stuck in the ‘No!’ phase. Setting out one day the No-No bird – called for the one word he always uses – discovers the dangers of always saying “No!” and learns instead the benefits of saying “Yes!” A bouncy rhyming text is matched by bold and attractive illustrations.

Synopsis

The No-no Bird by Andrew Fusek Peters, Polly Peters

No-No Bird's favourite word is NO! In fact, he likes saying it to everyone. NO, he won't play with Little Mouse; NO he won't climb trees with Squirrel. Then he meets Snake and learns that Snake's favourite food is No-No Bird. Can No-No Bird escape from a sticky end by changing his favourite word to YES?

About the Author

Andrew Fusek Peters is an Anglo Czech poet, author, anthologist, storyteller, didgeridoo player, broadcaster and creative writing tutor. He has written and edited over 30 books for Hodder-Wayland, Harper Collins, Ginn, Narefoot Books, Bloodaxe and Evans. These books include Poems with attitude, Sadderday and Funday and May the Angels Be With Us.

Andrew and his collaborator Polly Peters, an English and Drama teacher, are no strangers to poetry and novels but this appears to be their first venture into the "poetry novel".

Crash was published in 2004. Andrew and Polly both live in Shropshire. The rural area influenced the novel. The story is set in the countryside, and speeding is the main theme - trying to make young people aware of the dangers of speed, and importance of road safety.

It's a long way from Enid Blyton.
