George Flies South

By Simon James
Illustrated by Simon James

An inspirational story of a little bird who loses his nest, but finds his wings.

Winter is on the way and it's time to fly south. George isn't quite ready to leave his nest yet, but when an enormous gust of wind blows his nest out of the tree, things start to get really interesting! A gentle and reassuring tale charmingly told and illustrated by an award-winning picture book creator.

  • Sweet, gentle story about a young bird learning to fly on his own. Sure to be comforting to small children starting to test their own independence.
  • The bird-learns-to-fly story as madcap adventure, complete with speeding cars, boats, a crane ... even a scary cat!
  • Despite his delay in learning to fly, George is a plucky, spirited little character. He'll get past that milestone when he's ready...
