Bird Boy

Author(s): Benjamin Harper; Timothy Dean Banks (Illustrator)

Junior Fiction (Reading Age 7-9 years)

Birdy got his name when a forest worker found him up in a tree as a small child. The forest worker's daughter becomes Birdy's best friend. But Sanna the cook hatches an evil plan involving the strange boy and a boiling pot of water. Yummy! But only if you like roasted Bird. The two friends find out about the plot and flee into the woods - and that's when the magic happens. Weird magic, but still magic. This fractured retelling of The Foundling-Bird, a lesser-known tale from the Brothers Grimm, will make readers giggle, groan and gasp with delight. Especially when they find out what happens to the evil cook!
