WHEN AGNES CAWS by Candace Fleming and Giselle Potter

When Agnes Caws by Candace Fleming and Giselle Potter (NEW HB) $9.95

Agnes, daughter of a famous ornithologist, Prof. Octavia Peregine, could do the courtship dance of the blue-footed booby at age three. When she was five she could copy the flight of the yellow bellied sapsucker. But her real talent appeared when she was eight. In Borneo on a bird watching trip, a shriek came through the air. It was the cry of a golden fronted leaf bird. "...'you mean this?' said Agnes 'Cawaak caweek eek eek eek'" and a flock of the birds came fluttering down to the ground.

The Newspaper, after hearing of this amazing team, sent them on a quest to find THE BEAUTIFUL, THE RARE, Pink-headed duck! But can they save it before evil Colonel Pittsnap finds it, and stuffs it for his collection?

And, in addition to all this, it has great pictures by Giselle Potter.
