A delightful tale about growing up and letting go.

One bright spring morning, after a night of gales in the great woods, Angela discovers a small helpless bird who has fallen from his nest. She scoops the creature up and bears him home. From that day on, Angela lavishes all her nurturing care and attention upon the bird. Augustus is wrapped in the softest of blankets and is fed the finest of foods. He travels in style in an elaborate basket, or in his magnificent pushchair. Nothing is too good for Angela’s little loveykins. And when Augustus grows too large for his blankets, his basket and his pushchair, Angela builds him his very own shed. All is well, until one fateful night when the storms rage through the great woods once again.

One morning, after a night of gales in the woods, Angela Bowling discovers a small helpless bird who has fallen from his nest. Determined to help, she bears him home, to wrap him in the softest blankets and feed him the finest food. But Augustus is growing up and one night the storms rage again.
