40 page hardback book. Published by Wild Dog Books.

This book can be personally signed by Angela.



Bonny is a Rainbow lorikeet. Not long after she hatched, Bonny fell out of her nest.
She was rescued by a passerby and lovingly cared by Angela before being released into the wild.

Her emotionally resonant journey will appeal to a wide age-range. It follows the growth of a bird, something that every growing child will connect with. This is Bonny’s story.


Writing style

Bonny Grows her Feathers and Learns to Fly has been designed with the needs of very early readers and reluctant readers in mind. Simple and succinct language is used throughout the book, and the large font size helps to engage reluctant readers. The minimal text is placed on a stark white background, which further helps to draw reluctant readers in.


Photographic style

Bonny makes use of a wonderful series of images that capture the day-by-day growth of an animal, clearly indicating the changing nature of Bonny’s lifecycle.

These photos have been artfully created by the author, whose also a professional photographer.

Dynamic, full-page colour images are contrasted with clear white backgrounds that will captivate the reader’s attention. The photographs bring the viewer close to the subject that is being discussed, and also have the advantage of being static, giving the reader the opportunity to explore the image and look at the subject matter and its features in detail.

The photographs are also strongly composed and clearly printed with bright strong colours to increase the appeal to visual readers.

Readers can explore how photographs are used to convey messages.
