Format: Hardcover
A skilled reader could have a field day with this. Lots of opportunity for dramatic silences, voices, and ascending / descending phrases.

For a parent it's fun to read. Very few words mean the pictures have to work hard to tell the story. And they do. A family is out to catch a bird in their nets. The littlest family member wants to talk to the bird but is always shhed while the bigger family members use nets, ladders and other tools... but still can't catch him. Will someone succeed?

A wicked sense of humour pervades - size isn't everything. Simplicity often works best. And it's not always good to get what you wanted...

Simply but effectively (and memorably) illustrated. Very distinctive style. And excellent use of the simplest of text, that burgeoning readers will find themselves able to read.

Read it twice through to my three-year-old and we both laughed at all the mishaps and the ending.

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.

Simple story, beautiful design and striking visuals. Just an all round cracking book. Another winner from Chris Haughton who never disappoints

Although our 18 month old is perhaps a little young for this at the moment, she loves the rhythm of the text, loves the pictures, and repeats some of the phrases when we are out and about ("hello birdy!"). I love reading it to her, and I cant wait for her to understand the subtler humour when she's a little older. A good size, with bold illustration. Love it.
