Squawk: A Book of Bird Adventures
Squawk: A Book of Bird Adventures is a collection of madcap tales about the absurd, comical adventures of birds who journey to the unlikeliest of places. Each tale is accompanied by a colourful watercolour painting, which presents the character of the story. This book provides entertainment for the whole family.
We meet birds like Cleopatra the goose, an entrepreneur, who has built an incredibly successful record label; Dirk the devious duck, who is pretending to be a very serious scout leader (with his own, exciting narrative on the side); Mary the canary, who has extraordinary exploits, trying to escape from a coal mine. At the start and the end of the book, we enjoy Flo the flamingo's adventures, which are unpredictable, colourful and funny.
These stories all have happy endings, with unpredictable and exciting journeys. Squawk: A Book of Bird Adventures will open the wacky and fantastical world of readers' imaginations. We learn how to keep going against all the odds. We learn what matters, in a difficult situation.
The book is addictive, we want to read more.
