Synopsis

Flora's Very Windy Day by Jeanne Birdsall

When Flora and her pesky little brother, Crispin, are whisked away by a swirling and swooping wind, she gets the opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to give her brother away. With tempting offers from a dragonfly, the man in the moon, and even the wind itself, she will find it difficult to choose. But Flora would do anything to get rid of Crispin, wouldn't she?

Reviews

Birdsall's crisp and delightful first picture book....believable characters, a tightly constructed story line, and a nod to past children's literature. (Publishers Weekly)
