The beautifully illustrated story of Bert - a little bird with a big heart who is looking for love. From the picture-book superstar pairing of Julia Donaldson and Catherine Rayner.

The Bowerbird is the irresistible tale of Bert - a small bird with a very big heart, from Number One bestselling Julia Donaldson and Kate Greenway Medal-winning Catherine Rayner.

Bert the bowerbird is looking for love. He has made the most perfect bower, complete with a pretty purple flower, and is hoping it will help him to meet the bird of his dreams. But when Nanette comes along, she is far from impressed. Poor Bert is hurt, and flies off to bring her presents a-plenty. But will it ever be enough, and is Nanette really right for Bert?

A beautifully illustrated treat of a book from the creators of The Go-Away Bird.
