Crockle and the Kite


A Beaver Book from Hamlyn for younger readers.

One day Mr Noah decides that it’s time all the birds had an outing, and lets them all out of the Ark for a flying session. Crockle is very envious and longs to try flying himself, so when Ham gives Jaffet and Jannet a lovely kite which he has made Crockle is determined to have a go. When no one is looking he seizes the string and is carried high up in to the air – where he very quickly changes his mind about flying! Jaffet and Jannet are in despair – but then the eagle comes to the rescue.
