A Wee Bird Was Watching

illustrated by Kate Leiper
by Karine Polwart - Find out more about the author

A young girl and her mother settle in the woods for a night’s sleep, after a long and tiring journey. But who will keep them safe from harm? A wee bird is watching from the trees. And he knows just what to do. A vividly illustrated telling of a folk tale that speaks to themes of displacement, migration and protection.
