Two stars of the children’s literary world are at their best in this beautiful and eloquent picture book. The Go-Away Bird grumpily tells everyone to go away – we’ve all been there, little children included – but fortunately when she really needs friends at her side, they come back. The message about the importance of friendship and sharing is expertly and memorably delivered via Julia Donaldson’s lively rhyming text and Catherine Rayner’s vibrant illustrations. Eyes, ears and hearts will be captured by the story and there’s lots to discuss while reading.
A gorgeous story about friendship and working together from a star picture-book partnership, the bestselling Julia Donaldson and award-winning Catherine Rayner.
`The Go-Away bird sat up in her nest, With her fine grey wings and her fine grey crest.'
One by one, the other birds fly into her tree, wanting to talk or to play, but the Go-Away bird just shakes her head and sends them all away. But then the dangerous Get-You bird comes along, and she soon realizes that she might need some friends after all . . .
The Go-Away Bird combines brilliant rhyming verse from much-loved children's author Julia Donaldson, creator of the bestselling picture books The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard, with stunning illustrations from the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal-winning Catherine Rayner. A charming story about the power of friendship from a thrilling creative partnership, this beautiful book is perfect for reading together.
