Grounded is Jim’s brand new story, soon to be available in the iBooks store and Kindle.
Kate the kiwi lives her life on the forest floor in New Zealand.
She is desperate to fly like other birds, but as everyone knows, “kiwis can’t fly”.
However, one day a sneaky galah promises to give Kate flying lessons if she pays him in huhu grubs – the tastiest treat in the whole forest.
On the way, Kate learns a whole lot about flying, friendship, diversity, sustainability and of course… gravity.
It’s a funny, sweet little story, and an easy chapter book, perfect for a read-along shared book in the classroom or at home.
