When Angela Bowling rescues a baby bird after a storm, she finds her very own Loveykins.
Following a blustery night, Angela Bowling finds a baby bird blown out of his nest. She names him Augustus, and he quickly becomes more to her than just a bird to be looked after. He's her little Loveykins. But Augustus is growing larger and rounder and soon requires a special garden shed to house him. He seems content enough...until another night brings even stronger winds.
From the UK's first Children's Laureate, this droll tale about the improbable friendship between a determined, eccentric matron and a young bird is classic Quentin Blake. With his quirky, humorous watercolors and his distinctive storytelling style, Blake gives readers a charming and sensitive treatment of the issues of loving and letting go.
