Ecological and Environmental Interest - Fiction Family / Home Stories Featured Books for 7+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers

A universal story of longing and imagination, the perfect refrain for a young rebel

Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2021

Based on the life of Swedish artist Berta Hansson, this is the story of a young woman with the bravery to live her own truth and follow her own path, despite the protests of her father and society at the time. This determined, unconventional female protagonist who defies her father to do what she loves will resonate with many readers who feel misunderstood and long for freedom



The Bird Within Me Synopsis

Berta is a young girl with an artistic soul growing up on a farm in the Swedish countryside at the beginning of the 20th century. Her father doesn’t understand her and her mother is dying. But Berta longs to be an artist and can’t stay on the farm forever.
