Little Boy George Wants to Be a Bird
Starfish Bay Publishing Pty Ltd
Spirited little George wants to be many things: a bird with wings, a whale with a wide tail, a monkey with long and strong arms, and a lion with a golden mane. But at the end of the day, George just wants to be a little boy, to be cuddled tightly in his mother’s arms, and to listen to stories. Paired with quirky and imaginative illustrations, Little Boy George Wants to be a Bird is intended to nurture an adventurous spirit and highlight the importance of a loving childhood.
