The Nightingale Who Couldn’t Sing


Angie Featherstone
Illustrated by Stephanie Wong


No matter how hard Holly tries, she just can’t seem to sing—and her brothers and sisters make fun of her. So she runs away from her family. It is only when her mother finds her that Holly learns that there is something more important than being able to sing well.

“Cute round birds, and a message of self-acceptance and mum's love make this a winner.”
—Clara Chow, My Paper
