The Christmas Robins, picture 4

“‘I can’t go on!’ said Ropey. ‘I’m ill. Look how red my breast’s gone.’
‘It’s supposed to be like that,’ said Robbie.
‘Is it?’
‘Of course it is! That’s how people know we’re robins!’
‘That’s how we look so smart and cheerful!’ exclaimed Rupert.
‘Cheerful!’ said Ropey. ‘Cheerful he says! What about my thin legs? Look how thin my legs are! Who can be cheerful with legs like these?'”

From The Christmas Robins, the new picture book by myself and Mollie Macgregor-Kinnis.
