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."

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
