Review:

Author/illustrator Lucy Cousins offers a 24 hour challenge: be a bird, for just one day.

"Flap your wings and you can fly,/higher and higher,/ up, up in the sky." "Scratch the ground with your feet. Catch a fly with your beak."

With calls and poses and waddles and song, every page is inviting, vibrant and filled with joy. Readers of all ages will be shouting (and tweeting): Hooray for Lucy Cousins!
