A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month June 2023

Best-selling author Julia Donaldson’s new book is beautifully illustrated by award winning artist Catherine Rayner. Together the two have created a charming, poetic story about a little bird who is looking for love.

Bert builds a homely bower hoping to tempt a partner. When Nanette appears he falls in love with her. He offers to share his bower and gives her all kinds of special gifts including a pretty purple flower.

Haughty Nanette spurns all his offers leaving kind and romantic Bert feeling rebuffed and sad. Will he ever find someone who will love him?

Julia Donaldson’s charming tale of love, loss and finally happiness is perfectly imagined in Catherine Rayner’s illustrations making the whole a delightful treat for all ages.
