This delightful children's book was been written by Lucienne Noontil to show the wonderful life that this bird lived.

Mordrid was injured in a car accident and found to be blinded. It was given to Yvonne Cowling to raise.

Yvonne lovingly cared for Mordrid for 22 years and during that time it is estimated that Mordrid met 70,000 school children when Yvonne took her to local primary schools, local festivals and other community events, as part of a wildlife talk.

"Mordrid: Tale of a Tawny Frogmouth" is in rhyme form and a delight to read to young children; older children appreciate the story and the beautiful wildlife drawings.

"Mordrid is not your every day bird, after an accident she loses her sight. She will never again live a normal life in the trees. What will she eat? Where will she live? Fortunately she is adopted and Mordrid's new life begins..."

Signed copies of this paperback, at $18.00, are available at Rainy Day Books, Cnr Forest Road and Mountain Highway (at the roundabout), in the Basin. Telephone: (03) 9762 0862. (Melways Map 65 G7)
