Birdy and Bou

Author: Illustrator: Mandy Stanley

Bou loves the floating library. But - oh no! - his favourite book is missing. Who could have it?

A wonderfully vibrant picture book for young children about two of the best things in life - books and friends!
Bou the red-eared panda wakes up one morning and hears the toot-toot of the floating library. He's excited to go and borrow his favourite book and rushes to the library boat, only to find that his book has already been lent out. He sets off to find whoever has borrowed it so they can share - and in the process makes a fantastic new friend.

With artwork in strong primary colours, and a fun, yet simple storyline, Birdy and Bou is perfect for fans of Maisy by Lucy Cousins.

Introducing a brand new pair of adorable characters to fall in love with from David Bedford and Mandy Stanley, the brilliant partnership behind Roo the Roaring Dinosaur.

'This wonderfully vibrant picture book will captivate children ... a brilliant celebration of friendship and of the love of books, perfect for sharing and asking your child about their favourite book(s).' Parents in Touch

My almost 5 year old daughter loved this book, it’s got such bright pages that really grab your attention and is a lovely story about a panda called Bou who goes to the library to find his favourite book only to find out it’s been given to his friend birdy. Bou hunts for birdy and the book and they end up sharing the book together. 
Would recommend this book for ages 3-6 years. The pages are coated so easily wipeable too.

Nice bright clear pictures that my 13 month old liked. The story of Bou looking for his favourite book at the library and finding that someone else has taken it is very sweet. It shows him disappointed that he didnt get his book but happy making a new friend in the person who took his book out. My 4 year old liked the simple story and friendly characters.

This is such a fab book for little ones.  Each pages is strong and coated so they are durable and wipe clean meaning little ones can handle a proper book rather than just board books.  The illustrations are really bold and colours bright too.  Added to which, the story about a favourite library book going missing but ending in friendship is a lovely moral for all to enjoy.

We enjoyed this book lovely bright illustrations to keep my daughters attention.  A great quick story to read good for toddlers following Bou going to the library to get out their favourite book and then the adventure that happens along the way.
