About the book: When Noi, who readers will recognise from The Storm Whale books, goes to spend the summer at Grandma’s he isn’t sure that they have anything in common. However a misadventure helps them to bond and the summer turns out to be better than Noi hoped. Grandma Bird is the third story set in the world of Noi.
Reasons for selection: Benji Davies perfectly captures the emotional experience of young children, in this story about staying away from home with an elderly relative for the first time. There’s warmth to the pictures which provides a comforting reading experience despite the drama and jeopardy of the exciting narrative climax. There’s plenty to explore in terms of character motivation, change and themes as well as opportunities for wider learning in science, art and dance.
