In a spare urban fable, Bob Graham brings us one small boy, one loving family, and one miraculous story of hope and healing.In the busy city, no one sees the bird lying on the pavement with a broken wing. No one, except a young boy named Will. With the help of his parents, Will takes the bird home to care for it. With rest, time, and a little hope, perhaps the bird will fly again. A paperback edition of a magical story, endorsed by Amnesty International UK.

Reviews

A warm hearted story ... young children will enjoy following the bird's recovery as well as all the details of a happy family home included in Graham's simple, assured illustrations. * The Bookseller * Simple but evocative illustrations ... a memorable book for any child who cares for other living creatures. * The Northern Echo * Poignantly told and visually rich, this narrative flies high... Exemplary use of color and perspective denote shifting moods, and thin lines enhance the vulnerability of this boy and his bird. Gently expressed and honestly delivered, this quiet, yet powerful story provides young readers with an affirming conclusion * School Library Journal, US * A moving story with simple illustrations, few words and enormous opportunities for storytelling. * Nursery World * Graham's Sempe-esque art is charming...I can imagine plenty of children finding it moving * The Irish Times * A picture book classic * The Sun *

This book is amazing. As a primary teacher I am always searching for great books to use and this is one of my favorites. It teaches students great morals about the environment and caring for animals. Pictures in this story are also wonderful, early primary students will love this story and learn a lot from it.

An endearing story which draws the reader into Will's concern for a lone and injured bird. With minimal text (just a few words on each page), the story is demonstrated mainly through comic strip sequencing of events. Ideal for the beginner reader with rich illustration providing material deep observation, thought and discussion. The story is one of compassion and hope, gentleness and caring.
