‘This is a riotous story featuring Boris the vulture from brilliant storyteller Sally Grindley and the acclaimed master of animal characterisation and illustration, Michael Terry.’  Lovereading4kids

I love Michael’s pictures for this. Just look at the front cover! The story is about a young vulture called Boris who refuses to cheer up, no matter how hard his friends try to help out with games of chase and hide-and-seek. Everything goes wrong. By the end of a grumpy day, Boris needs a cuddle from Mum, but even that isn’t enough.
