About the book: 
A captivating story, told in rhyming verse, about a hadeda who loves to sing. Hagedash and her family will be familiar characters to children across the country – the cast is drawn from the comical birds they see every day on garden lawns.
 
The text offers insight into the real-life traits and habits of hadedas and tells the story of Hagedash, her happy meeting with Hagar and their growing family. The initially tranquil scene builds up to a great commotion, but it all ends peacefully. 

The bright, playful drawings are by Claire Norden who has a proven track record in illustrating children's books. The book comes with a full page of stickers to encourage further engagement with the story.
 
This third title in Struik Nature's 'Original African Tale' series – set to become local classics – will have wide popular appeal with children and parents alike.
