Peep awakes one morning to the sound of beautiful birdsong--but where is it coming from? It is the Dawn Chorus! And Peep wants to sing with them. But despite trying his hardest, Peep realizes he doesn't quite fit in with the other birds in the chorus. Little does Peep know, he is about to meet someone who will show him how special being a nightingale can be . . .
A heartfelt story about finding the beauty in what makes us different, this debut picture book is exceptionally illustrated by exciting new author-illustrator Suzanne Barton.
