This is a follow-up to "The Wild Woods". "When I go birdwatching, things happen," Grandad says. Sometimes, he says, the birds draw him while he's drawing them, or they help him find their names in his bird book. "Birds are amazing," says Grandad, but Jess isn't sure, so one day she goes with him.
Jess and Grandad return in this delightful follow-up to the popular The Wild Woods; "When I go birdwatching, things happen," Grandad says. Sometimes, he says, the birds draw him while he's drawing them. Sometimes, he says, the birds help him find their names in his bird book. "Birds are amazing," says Grandad. But Jess isn't sure. So one day she goes birdwatching with Grandad to see for herself! With expressive line-and-wash drawings in his inimitable style, Simon James captures in this charming story the leafy grandeur of the outdoors and the warm, special friendship between a little girl and her grandad, illustrating once again the huge happiness to be found in little things.
