Read full description of the books:
Following a blustery night, Angela Bowling finds a baby bird blown out of his nest. Her sense of duty compels her to wrap him up carefully in her scarf and take him home.She names him Augustus and hequickly becomes more to her than just a bird to be looked after. He's her little Loveykins. She stuffs him with gourmet foods like creamed carrots and chocolate eclairs. She wraps him tightly in shawls and fine sweaters so he won't catch cold, and parades him around town in a fancy stroller, taking care to protect him from the rain and the sun.
Augustus is growing larger and rounder and soon requires a special garden shed to house him. He seems content enough...until another night brings great gales of wind and Augustus is blown free of the blankets and sweaters and garden shed. What will happen now, when Augustus takes off into the air and realizes the view is a good deal different -- and more satisfying -- from up above?
From best-selling author-illustrator Quentin Blake, Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom and winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and a Bologna Ragazzi Award, comes the charming story of an improbable friendship between a determined, eccentric matron and a bird she rescues from a storm.
