"The Birds from Over the Hedge" will be the title of the next book in the British Wildlife Tales series.
I spent some time with my daughter Hope deciding on which of our characters we should include in this book. Here are just a few of our favourites from the 10 that will feature:
House Sparrow - because Hope's cousin James says so!
Long-Tailed Tit - because they are Daddy's favourite little birds
Wren - because Hope says it reminds her of Erin, one of her classmates
Kestrel - because Daddy thinks it is about time a bird of prey showed up!
Great Spotted Woodpecker - because Hope has "seen one before" and likes how they drum on the trees!
The other birds that will feature are:
Magpie, Chaffinch, Jackdaw, Greenfinch, Song Thrush.
So there you have it! It is officially underway.
Keep checking back, and I will make sure I let you have some sneaky previews of the characters as the final illustrations progress.
