Enjoy a Bookstart Bird Boogie with these fantastic illustrations

Published on: 08 June 2018 Author: Catriona Wightman

All week long we've been having a fabulous Bookstart Bird Boogie to celebrate National Bookstart Week and this year's free book, A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins!

Illustrations from A Busy Day for Birds

As always, we asked social media to help us celebrate by taking part in our #IlloBookstart challenge.

And as always, a bunch of brilliantly talented illustrators shared some pictures of their takes on the Bookstart Bird Boogie.

We've put together a few below, including their Twitter handles so you can find out more about the illustrators.

And if you'd like to get involved, it's not too late! Just tweet @BookTrust with your drawing and the hashtag #BookstartBirdBoogie - we'd love to see what you come up with!
