Book Description

6 Mar 2014
Four friends, three big and one little, are out for a walk. Suddenly, they spot it - a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! They simply MUST have it and - SHH! - they have a PLAN. So they tip-toe, tip-toe very slowly, nets poised - "Ready one ... ready two ... ready three ... GO!" But, at the turn of the page, we find a ridiculous bunch of very tangled characters and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away. One hilarious foiled plan after another and it's clear that this goofy trio CANNOT catch that elusive birdie! But the littlest of this group, a quiet spectator up until now, knows that a bit of kindness and sweetness can go a lot further than any elaborate scam. Will his three friends follow his gentle lead or will they get themselves into even more trouble?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 12 Jun 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Another beautifully illustrated Haughton book, with quite dark humour at times that many 4 and 5 year olds grasp quite easily. A pleasant moral to the story provided by the book's youngest character is not lost on children.
