'My father and I. We went to the edge of the falls for revenge. To find my attacker the magpie...

'Luke Davies′ poem "Childhood Terror" describes in 9 lines the fear of a magpie attack and a boy′s reaction as his father helps him face that fear. Together, author and illustrator have created a wonderful picture book that takes this poem and turns into a story of a dog and his pup on a journey to find the magpie. Brilliantly realised, the illustrations bring a whole new level to Davies' poetry.' (From the publisher's website.)
