Synopsis

Billywise by Judith Nicholls

From a mole-black hole in the oldest oak, deep in the heart of the fern-brushed wood. In this poetic and atmospheric text, the first faltering steps of a little owl chick are depicted, from the struggle out of the egg, to the final exhilarating first swoop of flight. A lyrical text from a children's poet is complemented by stunning artwork by prize-winning artist Jason Cockcroft.

About the Author

Judith Nicholls

Judith Nicholls is one of Britain's best-known poets for children, with over 50 books published and more than 500 schools visited since 1985. She has also appeared on radio, TV, and has shared a poetry training video with Michael Rosen. With three children and six grandchildren of her own, and a wide experience of teaching before becoming a poet, she has developed a real understanding of what entertains children; she brings that into her poetry so well that Junior Bookshelf described her as being "beyond question in the front rank of poets whose work is accessible to the young."
