An engaging and amusing tale about overcoming fear from an award-winning team.
In the middle of a wood there is a chick who will not fly. Not I! she cries to Mother Owl and Father Owl. She flaps, she flips, she flops and hops back into the nest. Time passes and seasons change, but still she refuses to fly. Will she ever learn to let go and soar up into the open sky?
Jeanne Willis lyrical text and Tony Ross's almost ghostly pastel illustrations give this an entrancing, night -time feel Angels & Urchins
Great for reading aloud...Ross's illustrative style is the perfect match for Willis's imaginative storytelling Bookbag
The poetic simplicity of the prose, with its built-in repetitions and wordplay is well matched in painterly illustrations by Tony Ross Irish Times
A gentle poetic story accompanied by atmospheric illustrations, which held the attention of a couple of under threes. The School Librarian
