This morning, Raffi McCaffery is anxious. Behind his house, chain saws are threatening to topple trees and build on land where songbirds live. Without a place to nest, what will happen to the common yellowthroat? Raffi isn't sure what he can do to save the birds, because he has trouble walking. His legs may be weak, but he has lots of ideas, and friends ready to help!
About the authors
Sylvain Meunier was born in Lachine, Quebec, and has written several books for adults and children. Two of his novels, Le seul ami and L`Homme a la bicyclette, have been finalists for the Governor General`s award.
Élisabeth Eudes-Pascal is a highly acclaimed artist and illustrator and was a finalist for the Governor General's Award for Children’s Book Illustration. She was three years old when she first saw her mother draw. Ever since that magic moment, she never stopped creating art. She lives with her husband in Montreal, where she helps intellectually challenged people of all ages draw and paint, loves chocolate almost as much as drawing, and, like Bubbie on her scooter, cycles around town on her bike.
