Curlew dances to ‘Jumpin’ Boogie Woogie’ by Jason Shaw Audionautix,com CC4.0 | Video by Sandra Severgnini

Boogie Woogie Bird is a delightful peek into the wonderfully wacky world of birds’ courtship dances.

Goofy dancers and hopeless romantics alike will rejoice at Curlew’s tale of embracing his inner klutz to find both his groove and his soulmate. 

Award-winning illustrator, Sandra Severgnini, has created gorgeous illustrations and layouts.

We signed a publishing deal with Redback Books in 2021 with publication in March 2022.
