It was a very special day for Neffy the Microraptor--she would be taking her first flight. But when Neffy spread her wings she didn't know what she was supposed to do! Will she learn in time to join her sisters and escape the predators on the ground? In this informative and fact-based story, Joe Lillington takes the reader back to the time of dinosaurs as we follow young Neffy in her first attempt at flying. Along the way, she meets other friendly dinosaurs (and some not so friendly ones), all illustrated in Lillington's beautiful style full of character.

Review quote

Neffy and the Feathered Dinosaurs is an entertaining story which is a great introduction for children who are starting to get interested in dinosaurs and that period of time.
--The Bookworm Baby Bedtime stories are the perfect way for us to learn together, and the repeat reads definitely encourage facts to stick - for me, that is. Books like Neffy and the Feathered Dinosaurs are an ideal fit for us, and Neffy is particularly great. One part story, and one part supplementary non-fiction.
--Golden Adventures of a Dark Horse

A unique and special dinosaur book unlike any others I have seen before!
--The Wandering Bookseller
