Synopsis

A Song for Lorkie by Jennifer Castles, Dean Bowen

Lorkie was a Roofbird. His best friend was Brian, and they had been friends since they were eggs. They lived in the Valley of Roofs, where every bird had a song to sing except Lorkie. Lorkie couldn't sing, until he found a new home in the middle of the Argy-Bargy roundabout. Brilliant pictures from internationally acclaimed artist Dean Bowen harmonise perfectly with Jennifer Castles' sweet and surprising text in this delightful book for children and parents to read aloud together.
