The Birdwatchers by Simon James. My sister "spotted" this book in the Segamat Library. What a surprise find it is:-
Lovely and wonderfully quirky illustrations at the official website of Mr Simon James, the author. I couldn't resist counting the number of birds on the cover of this book - which to me, was 11. Would be very interesting to see how many birds a child will see on the cover. Will definitely look out for this book at the upcoming Big Bad Wolf Year End Sales.
