The Queen Of The Birds

The Queen of the Birds

Karine Polwart
Illustrated by Kate Leiper

£6.99

After a terrible storm, the Kingdom of Birds is looking for a leader. Will it be the bird with the loveliest song, or the brightest plumage? The fastest in the air, or underwater? The bird who flies highest, or those who stick together and work as a team?

All across the sky, birds are flocking together. Nightingales and robins, barn owls and blackbirds. The eagle, the flamingo, the birds of the moor. Curlews and cuckoos and herons and hoopoes. And Wee Jenny Wren.

Let the contest begin!

This charming story is a retelling of an old folk tale and has the valuable message that appearance isn’t everything.
