The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award 2009. A story of hope and compassion in a big city - from Australian picture book master, Bob Graham.
What the Kate Greenaway Award judges said:
'A beautifully understated book which makes fantastic use of perspective and of a simple but highly expressive line to convey the emotions of the story. Ideal for sharing with the non-reading child, it has a filmic quality as Graham pans in and out of this delightful tale.'
How to Heal a Broken Wing by Bob Graham
When Will helps an injured bird, he learns that a little kindness can go a long way.
No one in the busy city sees the bird lying on the pavement, its wing broken - no one but a small boy called Will. He and his mum carry it home and, with time, rest, and a little bit of hope, the wing mends... and they set the bird free to soar over the city once more.
This is a paperback edition of a magical story, endorsed by Amnesty International UK. It is a poetic picture book full of hope and tenderness, from a multi-award-winning creator.
'Simply magical'. Junior on Jethro Byrde, Fairy Child.
