All I Said Was

Publisher: Red Squirrel Books

A boy dreams of being able to fly like a bird. As luck would have it, he meets a pigeon who is equally keen to swap roles with him and he can finally experience his dream. It doesn't take long for the boy to discover that his feathered incarnation has drawbacks, such as being mobbed by other birds and attacked by a farmer. It's no surprise that he starts to regret his decision and wants to return to his life as a boy. However the bird is now thoroughly enjoying lazing around in the boy's bedroom with a good book - will he be willing to swap back?

This is a deliciously cunning 'grass isn't always greener' tale from unrivaled storyteller Michael Morpurgo. A final twist in the tale adds further interest, as does the potent message about the power of books and reading.

One of an innovative series of dyslexia-friendly picture books which feature accessible fonts, strong contrast, good spacing and uncluttered layout to ensure accessibility for all, including parents with reading difficulties.
