Shortlisted Little Rebels Award 2015

A band of forest folk spot a bird. Three of them have a plan: to sneak up on it and capture it with their nets and cage. One of them, the smallest one, wants to chat to birdy and feed it crumbs, a gesture which has unexpected consequences. A subtle, minimal words picture book about kindness and friendship winning out over force and enmity. Little Rebels Judge, Elizabeth Laird, said: 'This is a book of wonderful subtlety and humour. The message of non-violence and respect for the natural world is conveyed with almost no words, in simple, bold artwork that children will love'. Age 2-6 , Paperback 37pp Also available as a boardbook ref: 2494b
