A story of hope and compassion in a big city -- from Australian picture book master, Bob Graham.
In the busy city, no one sees the bird with a broken wing. No one, except a young boy named Will. With the help of his parents, Will takes the bird home to care for it. With rest, time, and a little hope, perhaps the bird will fly again.
Bob Graham, Australia's leading picture-book maker, has written and illustrated many children's picture books including "Oscar's Half Birthday", "Buffy" and "Let's Get a Pup". He won the 2000 Smarties Gold Medal for "Max", the 2003 Kate Greenaway Medal for "Jethro Byrde, Fairy Child" and the Australian Children's Book of the Year Award an unprecedented four times. His recent books include the early reader, "Jack's Little Party" and "My Dog, My Cat, My Mum and Me!" with Nigel Grey.
Review"Children from as young as three will empathise with Will, while older children and adults can sharpen their visual literacy skills, noting the filmic techniques that inform and move readers of this perfectly designed and heart-warming book." Bookseller+Publisher
