Mad Magpie - Gregg Dreise
By Gregg Dreise
The Cheeky butcher birds always tease Guluu and he is becoming a very mad magpie.
When Guluu herds the advice of his elders and ignores the birds, they just laugh at him.
but Guluu tries again... and this time he stands proudly at the riverbank and remembers how to used to sing when he was having a bad day.
Stay calm like the surface of the water, yet strong like it’s current. Sing! Dance! Laugh!
"Mad Magpie is such a wonderful story. We use it as a study text with our Year 1 students and it is very powerful to discuss acknowledging feelings, owning your actions and try to make better choices. One of our favorites." C. Jean
"Love his books and enjoy using them in our English and Visual Arts programs to promote student thinking and understanding." R. Khattab
