The author even joined in and hid some books of her own!
“The sun was melting into the horizon and the air was sweet with stale rain.”
Book fairies have been flying around the UK today to find perfect places for copies of The Bird Singers…
“It wasn’t the first night Layah had heard the whistling – but it was the first time she had followed it.”
About the book:
‘The whistling had started on their first night. At first, Layah thought it was bird song – a high thin sound which became a melody, rising and falling. And each night, it returned.’
Strange things have been happening to Layah and her younger sister, Izzie, ever since their mother dragged them to a rain-soaked cottage miles from anywhere in the Lake District: there is a peculiar whistling at night, a handful of unusual feathers appear on their doorstep and there are murmurings of a shadowed woman in the forest. And their mother is behaving very oddly. Layah is mourning the loss of her dear grandmother in Poland – and can almost hear her Babcia’s voice telling her the old myths and fairy tales from that magical place.
And as the holiday takes on a dark twist, Layah begins to wonder if the myths might just be real. A thrilling debut from remarkable new talent, Eve Wersocki Morris.
“The skyline was pinkish purple; twilight was already looming on the horizon…”
Book fairies even had the pleasure of meeting Eve today, who was more than happy to hide a few copies of The Bird Singers herself!
“Something unnatural was going on. And if the birds weren’t normal, then – she hated to admit it – perhaps neither was their mystery…”
We love hearing from those lucky people who find the books we hide! Here are just a few of the photos we received about The Bird Singers!
