Book review – Athletics antics (Birdgirl series)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great magical story August 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Kimberley’s love and knowledge about birds, especially birds of prey, comes shining through in this very enjoyable book about a girl called Ava and the magical Rainbow Bird.
Ava loves birds and is very caring; however this doesn’t save her from being teased by the `popular’ girls at her school.
She shares a love of shot put and discus with her dad and decides that she would like to make him proud by enter these events at the School Athletics Carnival.
When spiteful teasing means the loss of something important, she calls upon her friend the Rainbow Bird for help, and is transformed into a magnificent bird of prey, which saves the day and leaves her with a good luck talisman.
Despite everything Ava comes through in the end in this great book which will appeal especially to girls and lovers of birds of prey, as it has some fascinating facts about the Black-shouldered Kite in the back.

This review is from: Athletics antics (Birdgirl) (Kindle Edition)

Athletic Antics in the Bird Girl series is a delightful story. Reading it, I couldn’t help but feel a little cheerful and uplifted. I felt like I had just seen a movie. The author used descriptive words that really paint a picture in your head, and sometimes make you smell things like flowers. Naturally I would prefer a more G.I. Joe story, but I was captivated from the first page. This is the third book in the series, and I really liked that I didn’t need to read the previous books to understand this one. This is a wonderful series I will read to my kids. Kimberley Jane Pryor has really impressed me with the amount of work she has put into publishing not only this story, but many others.
