Imagine a world where birds don't fly, but just clutter up the ground, getting under everyone's feet and generally driving people crazy. That's how it was, not long before you were born, as this quirky and entertaining tall tale has it. The Fflyte family found the birds to be just as much a nuisance as everyone else did—so Mr. Fflyte decided he would invent a flying machine to help them learn to fly. One of the world's most beloved illustrators—perhaps best known for his collaborations with Roald Dahl on numerous books for children—inaugural British Children's Laureate and Hans Christian Andersen Award winner Quentin Blake teamed with educator John Yeoman on this delightfully offbeat picture book for readers 4 to 8.
"Another brilliant book from Quentin Blake and John Yeoman, reissued for a new generation."—Bookseller (London)
