This author is capable of better, and has done better (Elizabeth I). This story begins well, with the potential to impart--in story form--to both children and adults, all sorts of knowledge about birds and other natural life. The reader does well here also. But it rapidly deteriorates into a 3rd rate attempt to turn birds into evildoers vs good guys; and it fails even at that. Even a children's story should not insult the intelligence and should be believable as a fantasy world. Usually I listen to stories over and over again, even as most children like to do with favorites. I have deleted this one from my MP3 player as not worth even the first listening.
The second book in this series is--unbelievably--even worse. My grandhcildren will never hear this, if I can help it.
