The Birds" is a horror story by the British writer Daphne du Maurier, first published in her 1952 collection The Apple Tree. It is the story of a farmhand, his family, and his community that are attacked by flocks of birds in kamikaze fashion. The story is set in du Maurier's home county of Cornwall shortly after the end of the Second World War. By the end of the story it becomes clear that all of Britain is under aerial assault.

One morning an egg appears in the meadow below the Great Oak Tree. Neither Jeremy Mouse nor the fairy Tiptoes Lightly have ever seen such a huge egg – over a foot tall! They go to Farmer John’s in search of an answer, but without any luck, and when they return the egg has grown! Thus begins an adventure which involves most everybody on the farm – human, animal and sprite. The egg, later hidden deep in the forest, keeps growing and finally hatches in a beautiful way on Easter Sunday.

The Starry Bird is an Easter tale with healthy doses of humor, adventure, and just plain fun. But underneath, in a form suitable for children, run the mystery-questions of life, death and resurrection that lie at the heart of Easter.

My kids are still in that fantasy stage of life and totally love this book. The funny explanations of why and how things are may seem a little goofy to me, an adult, but the kids think it makes perfect sense. They were cracking up about the different "creatures" responsible for maintaining different aspects of the world. The kids are happy with the story, it's an age appropriate book, life is good!

My kids, 6 and 9, love to hear these stories at bedtime. They are magical and beautiful, like all of Reg Down's books. We are not a Waldorf schooling family, but friends who are recommended these books, and I'm so glad they did. Kids need a little innocent and magic in their lives!

I love all of her books, and my daughter loves Tiptoes Lightly and all of the crew. This story build the perfect amount of suspense through the book (what is that huge egg?)without it being too exciting to read before bed. The whole series of books is wholesome and speaks to a child's imagination. Perfect for Waldorf families!

This is a great tale that has my 6 year old wanting more. The characters are fun and on an adventure. Great for a spring or Easter time theme reading.

My son started Waldorf school this year in 2nd grade. His class read these books in 1st grade, but my son LOVES them even at 8yrs! In fact, me and the wife love reading them too! They are old-fashioned fun using your true imagination! Will be getting more as we read on!

The Starry Bird is an Easter story, and within the book The Starry Bird, there is a chapter called The Starry Bird which is the story of Easter as told to Tom and June Berry by their father. The rest of the book revolves around a mysterious giant egg which appeared in the forest overnight, and keeps growing bigger.

At the end of the book, the giant egg hatches and a phoenix flies out--just like in the Easter story told to the children. There is lots of action, entertainment, and suspense as Tom, June, Tiptoes, and their forest friends (from magical to mundane) try to solve the mystery of the egg. But of course, it's all done in that wonderful Reg Down way that manages to keep things simple and calm at the same time.

My six year old and I both loved this book. She was couldn't get enough of it, and I am sure we'd have read it in one sitting if it had been up to her. She even had me read to her at bedtime (an honor usually reserved for her father) so we could finish it faster! I truly enjoyed reading it too, unlike a lot of books for this age group. It doesn't seem old fashioned, but there is a timeless quality which left me feeling as though I could be reading a book that was written 100 years ago.

Reg Down has done it again! We have read several of his Tiptoes Lightly books, and my 6 ½ year old declared it her favorite so far. The book has familiar characters (Tiptoes, Pinecone and Pepperpot the gnomes, Farmer John, Tom Nutcracker, June Berry and Ompliant). It also introduces a few new characters, including angels. The angels and the bird that hatches were introduced gently and naturally, not in a heavy-handed doctrinal way. Even if you haven't read any Tiptoes books, you could start with this one for the Easter season. It would make a great Easter basket gift, too. The book follows the short chapter, line drawing style of the other Tiptoes books. But the storyline in this book--a large, growing egg appears and hatches on Easter-- is continuous, meaning that the plot follows along building in each chapter, which is different from the initial two Tiptoes books which have a series of adventures. Another difference is that the author has presented two alternate endings that appear in separate chapters. The author handled this well by noting in italics at the beginning of these chapters the intended audience - younger (under 6) or older children. These chapters also have a story-within-the chapter approach, where the author has noted by asterisk where you could read an Easter story without the rest of the chapter (or even the book). My description of the author's efforts makes it sound more complicated than it is; when you are reading the author's notes are easily followed. I appreciated this ability to customize as this book will remain on our shelves, and my 4 year old has not yet heard the tale. I look forward to reading it again next year, or, since my daughter loves it so much, next week!
The Starry Bird is another fantastic book by Reg Down. As with all TipeToe books, there is a special way that the author pulls you and your child into the lives of June Berry, Tom, Farmer John and there wonderful woods. The encounters with fairies, gnomes and critters of the forest (including a very large elephant) all make for an adventure to be taken over and over. The Easter Tale is now exception! Each chapter builds a bit of suspense around a very large egg. To my 7 year old son every night he said "this is such a cliff hanger" but not being so much to produce excessive thinking before bed. The tons of giggles and a bit of suspense end with a great tale of rebirth and hope. Thank you Reg Down, for yet another wonderful tale to share with my boy!!
