George Flies South




by Simon James
Candlewick, 2011. Unpaged. Picture Book.

When George's mother urges him to prepare to fly south, he feels unready. But no matter, a gust of wind picks up George's nest along with George and when George's mom comes back, she sees him heading south on the top of a geezery man's car. As George's mom frantically follows, the wind bounces him and his nest from the car to a boat to a load of lumber to an I-beam. But when George and his nest are forced off the top of a building and his nest falls apart, will George be able to fly? Find out in Simon James' delightful picture book about the little bird who at first didn't quite get the drift.
