The Go-Away Bird by Julia Donaldson
From much-loved children’s author Julia Donaldson (creator of The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard) and the award-winning illustrator Catherine Rayner, THE GO-AWAY BIRD combines brilliant rhyming verse with stunning illustrations. This is a charming story about the power of friendship and is perfect for reading together (ages 2+).
‘The Go-Away bird sat up in her nest, With her fine grey wings and her fine grey crest.’
One by one, the other birds fly into her tree, wanting to talk or to play, but the Go-Away bird just shakes her head and sends them all away. But then the dangerous Get-You bird comes along, and she soon realizes that she might need some friends after all.
