What a Naughty Bird by Dan Widdowson, Sean Taylor

In this rhyming romp, a naughty bird flies around the world, pooing on other animals, until he goes a step too far... 'The bear didn't like it, you see. And the problem is, that I forgot... A bear can climb a tree.' A hilarious, irreverent rhyming story written by storyteller and award-winning picture book author Sean Taylor.


The story is about a naughty bird who likes to poo on everyone. The bear didn't like it when the naughty bird did a poo but I don't think anyone likes it. The bird was a bit naughty but a bit funny. The pictures were funny but the poo was disgusting. I wouldn't like it if a bird did a poo on me. The book was good, I liked it. Pixie, 3, from Wirral -- The Big Issue North * http://www.bigissuenorth.com/2015/07/summer-shelved/13273 * This bird has the attitude I think all birds have for humans regarding when they poop, although he takes it too far and is horrid to many animals. I guessed that the bird would learn his lesson with the bear, but what happened was unexpected and hilarious. I doubt the bird will poop on others ever again!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.
