Little Lost BirdAnimal Stories
By Patricia Hegarty
A range of simple stories for new readers, with beautiful colour illustrations by Sebastiaan van Doniinck.
Deer is grazing in the forest, minding his own business, when he hears someone calling out for help. Little Bird has injured his wing in a fall and has been separated from his flock, who are flying away to another, warmer land.
Deer is keen to help Little Bird and introduces him to his forest friends, who tell them that Little Bird needs to follow the sun in order to find his flock. But how can he do that when he can no longer fly? Deer offers to journey with him and they set off on an adventure through the forest and the seasons… A charming story about helping others to overcome obstacles.
