Birdsong written and illustrated by Ellie Sandall (Egmont)
PB RRP $6.00
ISBN 978-140524738-2

This book is a colour and sound presentation. Written for the very young it includes rhyme and a singsong quality to the text when it is read out loud.

The story is about a tree that has two colourful and loud birds land on its bough. Every double page spread introduces two new birds and sounds until one large dominant bird comes along and scares the others away. An unexpected little creature overcomes the large dominant bird. My three-year-old daughter heard this little twist with delight.

The images have a certain crayon like quality about them that is attractive and accessible to young children.
