Follow the Swallow (Blue Bananas (Egmont Press))
Follow the Swallow is a delightful tale of friendship and exploration from Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom, and illustrated by Pam Smy. Chack the blackbird and Apollo the swallow are fledgling friends. Apollo explains that he is practising flying to Africa - but Chack doesn't believe him. Chack tells Apollo that the blossom on his favourite tree will eventually turn into orange berries - Apollo doesn't believe him. But, with the inevitable turning of the seasons, both birds learn to believe the other - and cement their friendship forever. Follow the Swallow is a delightful storytime experience for children aged 2+. Perfect for kids who loved Night Monkey, Day Monkey and Spinderella. Julia Donaldson is the best-selling author of The Gruffalo, Stick Man, What the Ladybird Heard, and The Scarecrows' Wedding. She lives in Glasgow with her husband and spends a lot of time touring the country doing readings - and singing! Pam Smy's work has appeared in the anthology Magical Tales Of Ireland as well as numerous other compendiums and educational texts. Her best known work is The Hound of the Baskervilles.
