Johnny's pheasant  Cover Image Book Book

Johnny's pheasant / Cheryl Minnema ; pictures by Julie Flett.

Minnema, Cheryl, 1973- (author.). Flett, Julie, (illustrator.).


"Pull over, Grandma! Hurry!" Johnny says. Grandma does, and Johnny runs to show her what he spotted near the ditch: a sleeping pheasant. What Grandma sees is a small feathery hump. When Johnny wants to take it home, Grandma tries to tell him that the pheasant might have been hit by a car. But maybe she could use the feathers for her craftwork? So home with Grandma, Johnny, or the pheasant. Readers will delight at this lesson about patience, kindness, and respect for nature imparted by Grandma's gentl humor, Johnny's happy hooting, and all the quiet wisdom found in Cheryl Minnema's words and Julie Flett's evocative and beautiful illustrations. -- From dust jacket.
