Mad Magpie is the third book in this successful series of morality tales from award-winning author and illustrator, Gregg Dreise.
Inspired by wise sayings and the knowledge of his Elders, Mad Magpie tells the story of Guluu, an angry magpie who is being teased by a gang of butcher birds. The more he is teased, the angrier he becomes. When Guluu seeks advice, his Elders tell him to stay calm like the river, ignore the butcher birds and to be strong on the inside. Guluu tries this, but the cheeky birds just laugh at him. One day, when Guluu is at the river looking for worms, the butcher birds arrive and steal his food. He remembers the words of his Elders and he tries again – and this time Guluu has a different outcome.

Very happy with the order process & delivery was fast. The books were wonderful.
This book is just as relevant to adults as it is to kids. It is simple, beautifully illustrated and is now a display item in my home.
