My father and I.
We went to the edge of the falls for revenge,
To find my attacker the magpie…
Luke Davies′ poem ′Childhood Terror′ describes in 9 lines the fear of a magpie attack and a boy′s reaction as his father helps him face that fear. Together, author and illustrator have created a wonderful picture book that takes this poem and turns into a story of a dog and his pup on a journey to find the magpie. Brilliantly realised, the illustrations bring a whole new level to Davies′ poetry. Tender, funny and courageous.
For ages 5-7
