Whoosh! Strange and wonderful things happen when a little girl lets her creativity fly in this buoyant picture-book debut.

Itís a gray, gray day when Katie decides to liven herself up. After all, the birds in the picture on her wall look a lot more exciting than she does, and much happier, too. So Katie puts on her brightest clothing, takes hold of a paintbrush, and lets her imagination take flight. But itís more than her spirits that end up soaring!

About the author (2004)

Polly Dunbar has a degree in illustration from the University of Brighton in England. She says, "FLYAWAY KATIE is about the ability we all have to change our mood and make ourselves feel happier. All you need is a bit of creativity and a lick of paint! I certainly feel much brighter when I put on my best blue shoes." Polly Dunbar lives and works in London. This is her first picture book.
