"Sydney and the Whale Bird" by David Elliot is presented by Kathleen and Uani from Room 18.
This picture book tells the story of Sydney the penguin who is also an inventor. Things go disastrously wrong when he invents a whale-powered nest builder. You might well ask, "What is a whale-powered nest builder?" and if you listen to the podcast you will find that out. The whale ends up on the beach and that is where the Whale Bird thing from the title comes in.
We think this is a very good book to read when we are learning all about flight during our 'Up, up and away' inquiry at Pt England School this term.
