A simply hilarious, read-aloud bird book about garden conflict, what not-to-do to get on with others and how to achieve harmony in more ways than one.

Cape Robin Chat's job is to wake the morning up. And he knows exactly how to do it - get his fellow garden birds up and singing so that the sun shines.

But then a bird with a rough, out-of-tune voice invades his peaceful African garden. It's a Babbler and he fully intends on making his voice heard. In no time his screechy, out of tune Scurr-scurr-scurr has disrupted the harmonious dawn chorus.

Things quickly get worse when the Babbler's silly cronies join in. The morning isn't having it and the sun goes on strike. Cape Robin Chat decides it's time to do something. But will that something work on these annoying chorus invaders?

This is a fun book whose colorful illustrations will grab children's attention. And it's the perfect excuse for making all kinds of bird noises and joining in the reading.

Everyone can learn a lesson about courtesy and treating others how you'd like to be treated in this 32-page book. Perfect for story-telling any time of the day.
