Jack the Jackdaw and Friends is a book that can be enjoyed by children from the age of 5 years old and upwards. The subjects are as diverse as the content, and storyline of each poem. The characters range from birds, to reptiles; from animals and mammals, to fearsome insects! Each poem has a story to tell, which will keep children entertained all the way through. The conclusions are usually humourous, or even downright disastrous!: Which will make children want to carry on reading to the end. Hopefully, children will grow up with a love of, and knowledge of, different forms of animal life, and will learn to respect the fragility of wildlife in relation to our planet, for generations to come. Hidden inside some of the poems, are messages which some may relate to, whether it be environmental, or warnings of what could happen if we ignore certain factors regarding our world. Some of the characters in the book are produced from observations of the bird or animal in question, their weird and wonderful ways, and their interaction with each other. Altogether, a pleasure to write as well as to read.
