Sample text from Flying High!

Magpie - Daylight Robbery

 I spy a Magpie


My oh my!


With a swagger in his gait


And a glint in his eye


A head full of tricks


A nest full of bling:


Three coins, a bottle top


And my gold ring.


 


Swift – Fast


 Swift by name


Swift by nature


You’re a fly?


You were – I ate yer!


 


Tell-tale outline


Monochrome


I scythe the sky


My year-round home.


 


Kingfisher – Streaker 


Blink and you’ll miss me


Blink and I’m gone


I’m not some stately


Statuesque swan


Blink and you’ll miss me


A turquoise quiver


Streaking along


The banks of the river.

‘Glorious … will delight children and young-at-heart adults alike … What makes the book so special is the sheer joy, fun and enthusiasm Anneliese brings to her versions of common British birds.’ York Press


 


'This is said to be a book for young people but I enjoyed it a lot and at the very least it is a book that young and old could enjoy together … I found myself smiling as I read … poems here … They contain a lot of the truth about the birds they celebrate, portray and introduce. This is a delightful book and one which will be enjoyed by young people of all ages.’ Mark Avery
