Book Description

When an entire neighbourhood is fearful of a pesky magpie, a young boy is determined to show them that there is more to this native bird than what they see.

This story about an iconic native Australian bird, with bold and vibrant illustrations, will encourage readers to have understanding and compassion for animals.

  • Encourages understanding of and compassion for animals.
  • Teaches children about a well-known and iconic Australian bird species.
  • The bold and vibrant illustrations bring life to this charming story.

Growing up in the heart of Western Sydney, Corrine Ranieri always dreamt of living life by the beach. As a child, she immersed herself in recreating the imaginary worlds that she read about in books, worlds filled with fairies and animals that wore bow ties and top hats. Corrine wanted to dedicate her life to teaching children to read so she could share this joy. After being a primary school teacher for thirteen years, and now a mother to three small children, she has found herself creating stories inspired by her children’s imaginations and personalities.
