Description

Elvis the squirrel is always up for an adventure, especially when a good meal is involved. But when his best friend Chuck is carried off by Ronnie the raven, the biggest, meanest bird in the wood, it looks like Elvis might have bitten off more than he can chew. Can he come up with a cunning plan and persuade the local gang of garden birds to help him save his friend... or will Chuck become Ronnie's dinner?

This lovely wildlife adventure from much loved author Tony Bradman (author of Through my Window and Dilly the Dinosaur) is perfect for children who are learning to read by themselves and for Key Stage 1. Features engaging illustrations by Ashley King and quirky characters young readers will find it hard to resist.

Bloomsbury Young Readers are the perfect way to get children reading, with book-banded stories by brilliant authors like Julia Donaldson. They are packed with gorgeous colour illustrations and include inside cover notes to help adults reading with children, as well as ideas for activities related to the stories.
