Bird by Annette Lodge
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


I once met a bird who stared out to sea, as strange and as still as a bird can be. I sat down beside him and asked him why. Shortly he answered, 'Because I can't fly. My feet are too big, my feathers are wrong, my wings are short, my beak is too long. I don't know what I'm meant to do. I'm afraid of the sky so I wait for a clue.This beautiful story, written in verse, is a recollection by a boy who meets a strange bird on a beach. They share a common fear of life but are challenged when a colourful, charismatic fish turns up and invites them to dive headlong into the unknown. By diving into the sea, they dive straight into life and suddenly all their fears are not so scary anymore. For the first time, Bird is able to take flight and the boy finds bravery in his heart. I am no longer scared to be, the person hiding inside me.
