THIS BOOK IS DYSLEXIA FRIENDLY.
Sterling Thaxton is in love. In love with Lizzie Harris – the beautiful new girl. Her hair is the colour of magic. Her nose is as sweet as music. Her arms are as slender as rainbows. Problem is, she’s not interested. Luckily a small yellow canary turns up with some excellent advice. Hilarious comedy from the top selling author of the Mr Gum books.
Sterling kicked at a big pile of leaves. The leaves went flying everywhere.
‘HEY!’ came a voice. ‘What do you think you’re doing?’
Sterling looked around. There was no one there. Then he looked down. A little yellow bird was poking its face out of the leaves on the ground. It was a canary. A canary with a little silver bell around its neck.
‘What do think you’re doing?’ said the canary again. ‘You nearly kicked my beak off!’
‘A talking canary?’ said Sterling, bending down. ‘That’s ridiculous!’
‘Oh, is it?’ said the canary, puffing out its little feathery chest. ‘Well, we canaries think it’s ridiculous when we see you humans flying about in aeroplanes too.’
‘Hmm,’ said Sterling. ‘I hadn’t thought of that. You’re quite a clever canary, aren’t you?’
