My Bird, Bertie

By Amelia McInerney

Riding in the car with my bird, Bertie. Riding in the car, just Bertie and me. The contented couple find that twos company and threes a crowd when giggling Gertie gets on board… then Jiggy Jack and Silly Billy too! Come along for a ride that gets sillier and noisier and cramped and crowded as more and more passengers join in what was once a relaxing drive round town. Amelia McInerneys simple and entrancing rhyming text is matched by bright, beautiful retro illustrations from the talented Shane McG.
