More About the Author

Julia Donaldson, the 2011-2013 Children's Laureate, is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's most-loved picture books including The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard.

The Gruffalo, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, is now a children's classic and publishing phenomenon; celebrating 15 years in 2014, selling over 3 million copies worldwide, was voted Great Britain's favourite bedtime story on BBC Radio 2 and was adapted and broadcast as an animation on BBC 1 on Christmas Day 2009. The Gruffalo's Child and Room on the Broom are now also films, with Room on the Broom shortlisted for an Academy Award in 2014. Julia Donaldson's most recent books with Axel Scheffler include Superworm (2012), Highway Rat (2011), Tabby McTat (2010), Stick Man (2009) and Tiddler (2008).

Julia Donaldson has also published work with David Roberts, Nick Sharratt, Emily Gravett, Rebecca Cobb, and Lydia Monks. Her collaboration with Lydia Monks began in 2003, with the first collection of Princess Mirror-Belle stories. The fabulously glittery Sugarlump and the Unicorn is their sixth, and most recent, picture book collaboration. She also writes poems, plays, songs and fiction for older children and, together with her husband Malcolm, has performed her wonderful stage shows all over the world.

Format: Paperback
Perhaps one of the wierdest and most sinister children's stories I've ever read! Poor little Bert is late for school every morning because he gets waylaid performing numerous acts of charity on his way to school - find's a lost girl's mummy, and old lady's purse, a drink for a thirsty dog, directs a nurse to the hospital etc, and each time he gets told off for the teacher for being late. Finally Bert 'gets the conformity message' and abandons all such kind acts but makes the class on time, and become a reformed and respected character. Am I the only one worried about the subtext here?

My 6 year old son has really enjoyed and benefitted from practising his reading with these books. We bought them to use during the summer hols, but before they began he had started to read them.

A good book to help extend children's reading. Fun enjoyable short stories plus poems and a play. My 5 year old granddaughter really enjoyed the stories and there was sufficient challenge so she had a great sense of achievement once completed. This is the second of these songbird collections purchased and the books provide additional interest supporting the Oxford Reading Tree scheme without using the regular characters. All in all a very good purchase.

These books really allow the reader to engage and want to read the book, with lots of short stories and pretty pictures they encouraged my daughter to read every night.
