Follow the Swallow is a delightful tale of friendship and exploration from Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo. Chack the blackbird and Apollo the swallow are fledgling friends. Apollo explains that he is practising flying to Africa - but Chack doesn't believe him. Chack tells Apollo that the blossom on his favourite tree will eventually turn into orange berries - Apollo doesn't believe him. But, with the inevitable turning of the seasons, both birds learn to believe the other - and cement their friendship forever. Follow the Swallow is an enchanting tale from the UK's biggest picture book author and Children's Laureate, Julia Donaldson.
