Up with Birds!

By John Yeoman

A remarkably inventive tale about how birds ended up in the sky.

The Fflyte family find birds a nuisance as does everyone else, for there is simply not enough room for them on the ground. It is only when Mr Fflyte invents a flying machine that the birds finally learn to fly.
