Julia Donaldson, the bestselling author of The Gruffalo, and Catherine Rayner, award-winning illustrator, talk about their brand new picture book, The Go-Away Bird.
Find out about what inspired Julia Donaldson to write about Africa’s real ‘go-away bird’ and how Catherine coped with setting the book in just one tree.
The Go-Away bird sat up in her nest,
With her fine grey wings and her fine grey crest.
The other birds are keen to talk and play with her, but the Go-Away bird just wants to be left alone. When she finds herself in trouble, however, she soon realizes that everyone needs a friend or two.
