Feathers for Phoebe

Phoebe has always wanted to stand out from the crowd. But when you’re just a small grey bird in a forest full of colours, that can be a little tricky. Luckily, Phoebe’s friend Zelda runs a beauty salon, the most popular salon in the entire forest. Zelda decides Phoebe’s new look should start with a fabulous crest. So Phoebe picks the most colourful crest she can find. But still no one notices her. So she asks Zelda to add a tail…and some wings… until finally the old grey Phoebe is completely covered in an entire rainbow of sensational new feathers. But Phoebe’s new feathers do make it a little hard to fly. And walk. Or really move at all…

Phoebe quickly learns that all the feathers in the world might not make a difference – sometimes it’s the small things that get you noticed.

Rod Clement’s new picture book is lots of fun with a great message to boot. Available now, HB $25.
