Mad Magpie is the third book in a series of morality tales written and illustrated by Gregg Dreise. Inspired by wise sayings and the knowledge of his Elders, Mad Magpie tells the story of Guluu, an angry magpie who is being teased by a gang of butcher birds.
The more Guluu is teased, the angrier he becomes. When Guluu seeks advice, his Elders tell him to stay calm like the river, ignore the butcher birds and to be strong on the inside. Follow along as Guluu gives this advice a go and it met with different outcomes depending on his commitment to the advice. In the end Guluu sings so loud he cannot hear the birds laughing at him and they eventually give up and fly away. From that time on, the animals learnt to use music to create a happy mood and they worked together to stop bullying.
Suggested for ages three to six years.
