Brilliant Birds & Beasts

Purchase on the App Store




“My name’s Birgitte Berteldatter, and my home is on this barge.

I like to go exploring, stalking creatures small and large.

I draw them in a book because not everyone can see my Brilliant Birds and Beasts. (I wonder if they’re stalking me?)”

Dive into the bizarre and exciting world of Birgitte Berteldatter, eccentric explorer and adventurer extraordinaire! Her field journal has finally been published, releasing her astounding discoveries to the waiting world. Slightly confused that these beasts only seem to appear to Birgitte, she makes notes and sketches of all the fantastic creatures she finds on her adventures, where the Rolling Beagle knows no fear, the Urban Flox will nibble your socks, and a trick to befriending the beautiful but rather pompous Royal Crested Tiger is to give him pink sherbet. 

NO in-app purchasing! Read with your children in confidence that this is your time, your story.
