LoveReading View on Up with Birds!

Former Children’s Laureate Quentin Blake has teamed up with story teller John Yeoman to create a wonderfully inventive story about how birds came to fly. Before birds could fly, they just hurried into people’s houses for shelter. When the Fflyte family become sick of having birds under their feet all the time, Mr Fflyte invents a flying bicycle and encourages the birds to fly too by equipping them with a balloon each. Soon the air is full of feathers, the house is empty and everyone is happy...

 

Up with Birds! Synopsis

The Fflyte family find birds a nuisance as does everyone else, for there is simply not enough room for them on the ground. It is only when Mr Fflyte invents a flying machine that the birds finally learn to fly.
