A Nature Storybook about hummingbirds, beautifully told and illustrated by Nicola Davies and Jane Ray.From Nicola Davies, award-winning non-fiction author, and Jane Ray, one of the country's finest illustrators, comes a spellbinding Nature Storybook about hummingbirds. A hummingbird weighs less than a nickel, less than a 20 pence piece, less than a 50 cent bit. Whatever way you use to measure it, it's tiny. But every spring, hummingbirds that have spent the winter in Mexico fly north to make the most of the warmer weather. They nest as far north as Canada and Alaska - a 2,000-mile trip, made by a bird smaller than your thumb. This is the story of one spring migration: of a tiny bird, its amazing journey and the people it meets along the way.
