Review: The Dawn Chorus by Suzanne Barton

Dawn Chorus

The Dawn Chorus

by Suzanne Barton

When Peep awakes one morning to the sound of beautiful birdsong, he follows the melody and finds the Dawn Chorus. Their music enchants him – if only he could sing with them! But despite trying his hardest, Peep realised he doesn’t fit in with the other birds in the Dawn Chorus.

What Peep doesn’t know is that he’s about to meet someone very special who will change everything…

A heartfelt story of a tiny nightingale desperate to belong, by an exceptionally talented new author-illustrator.

This is a lovely heartwarming story of a little Nightingale who is desperate to be part of a ‘team’, except he isn’t a morning bird and can never be at the Dawn Chorus in time, or if he is he is never awake! Until he meets another Nightingale who sets him straight and he can sing happy from then on. This book is supported by wonderfully clear, crisp drawings.
