When Will helps an injured bird, he learns that a little kindness can go a long way.

No one in the busy city sees the bird lying on the pavement, its wing broken. No one but a small boy called Will. He and his mum carry it home and, with time, rest, and a little bit of hope, the wing mends - and they set the bird free to soar over the city once more. A paperback edition of a magical story, endorsed by Amnesty International UK.

  • A poetic picture book full of hope and tenderness, from a multi-award-winning creator.
  • Bob Graham’s books have sold over 1.6 million copies worldwide!
