Lyrebird: A True Story
‘Well heavens to Betsy! ..
You’re no ordinary chook!’
When Edith met a cheeky young lyrebird on her
garden path, she could not guess that he would one
day be known as ‘A Miracle of the Dandenongs’.
Soon, James the lyrebird was singing and dancing
for Edith, mimicking the birdsongs and other sounds
that echoed through the bush.
Word of their friendship spread and people travelled
from near and far to film and record James. But with
people came change ...
This story, written by Jackie Kerin and beautifully illustrated by
Peter Gouldthorpe, is based on real characters and celebrates a
remarkable friendship between a gardener and one of Australia’s
most extraordinary birds.
