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.

Industry 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 *
