The Lovereading comment:
In the middle of a wood there is a chick who will not fly. Not I! she cries to Mother Owl and Father Owl. She flaps, she flips, she flops and hops back into the nest. Time passes and seasons change, but still she refuses to fly. Will she ever learn to let go and soar up into the open sky?

About The Author
Jeanne has been writing since she was five and has published over 150 books across all genres from picture books to teen fiction. She has had other strange jobs alongside being an author, including cowboy boot seller and reptile vet's assistant and once conducted the school orchestra in concert despite not being able to read a note of music or identify the instruments. As well as cats, rabbits, hamsters, dogs, fish and rats, she has owned a garter snake called Betty, a 25 years old smooth-clawed toad called Dave, an axolotl, newts, locusts and some giant hissing stick insects. She was once thrown out of her religious studies class at school by the Reverend Brown for writing rude poems. She was the Blue Team Captain at Junior School, sprinted for the county and can still do cartwheels.
She has won numerous awards including the Red House Children’s Book Award, the Smarties Prize and the Sheffield Children’s Book Award. She lives in North London.
