Synopsis

Features a CD which includes an audiobook read by children's TV presenter Justin Fletcher and a special video of a British Sign Language interpretation of the story. The book and CD pack has a version of the story for everybody!

The jackdaw wants all his friends to come to his party, but when he calls out his invitation the animals just touch their heads. Why won't they answer? And what do their actions mean? Luckily a brown owl can help him with the puzzle!

This book about friendship and sign language was created by Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson with a group of deaf children in a workshop organised by the not-for-profit organisation Life & Deaf (www.lifeanddeaf.co.uk) which helps deaf children to explore their identities through poetry, film, performance and art.

Featuring Nick Sharratt's bright and accessible illustrations, WHAT THE JACKDAW SAW is another beautiful picture book from the team behind GOAT GOES TO PLAYGROUP and TODDLE WADDLE.
