April 2016 Debut of the Month A parade of brightly coloured birds strut, fly and peck their way across the pages. Some are familiar, some fantastical, but they all look fabulous in psychedelic colours and patterns. The design is equally stylish, mirroring what the birds are doing – you’ll need to turn the book on its side for example to read about the bird that’s incredibly tall. Children will soon have the bouncy rhyming text off by heart – ‘some birds waddle, some birds hop/and some birds eat worms until they go pop’ – and it offers opportunities to examine concepts, actions, and the nature of birds – one spread of a downcast bird in a cage is followed by a glorious image of a swift soaring off into the top corner and away. Stylish, irresistible fun for all. ~ Andrea Reece

Find out in this joyful celebration of birds and freedom, packed with wit and humour and with wonderfully fresh jewel-like illustrations.
