Try and Say Abracadabra!

The little birds are learning to fly.

All but one: Little Owl just doesn’t seem to get it!

“It’s easy” Tortoise says and gives him a magical tip to help him succeed.

This is a charming story with the moral “if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again” behind it, as well as how encouragement & support from those around us can make all the difference!

An original & beautiful picture book about doing our best and never giving up…
