Synopsis

The Nickle Nackle Tree by Lynley Dodd

In the Manglemunching Forest, there's a Nickle Nackle tree, growing Nickle Nackle berries that are red as red can be. And, that's not all that's nestling on the twisty branches of this laden tree. Count up some fabulous Lynley Dodd creations, such as one Ballyhoo bird, kicking up a din and two squawking Scritchet birds with legs so twiggy thin, to nine friendly Natter birds, building nice new nests to ten fussy Fissick birds in yellow feathered vests.

Reviews

Dodd's pictures are good, but the rhyming verse is even better - delightful to read aloud and soon learned by heart Independent on Sunday
