The Wonderbird

A flock of birds flew among the stars, twittering, chirruping, piping, hooting, all singing one wonderful song. Together they sang to the Wonderbird, a million different voices all in harmony.

Who IS the Wonderbird, and why have none of the birds ever seen her? Piper, the little moonsparrow, is determined to find out. The answer is as mysterious as it is surprising.

'What a wonderful book: I can imagine this being handed down through the generations. Beautifully produced, illustrated and written, the story combines ideas on togetherness and shared excellence. It is a jumping-off board for so much discussion as a little person attempts to make sense of the bewildering world around them. I cannot recommend this slim but powerful volume highly enough.'
