Full of funny instructions ("Say 'Hello, darling!' Then swoop like a starling"), it's a riotous, interactive, zingingly colourful book - perfect to share with the very young." * The Guardian * "Best-selling Lucy Cousins's boldly drawn birds inspire the imagination as she illustrates the wonderful things that different kinds of birds can do. Lively, colourful birds fill each page beautifully as she illustrates them flying, hopping, pecking, swooping, singing and running in a charming book that leads perfectly to bedtime." - February 2017 Book of the Month * LoveReading, Julia Eccleshare * "Beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of wild and wonderful birds [...] the perfect read-aloud book to be enjoyed by young and old [...]" * Surrey Advertiser *
