A toe-tapping story about finding your own rhythm from the award-winning creators of Goodnight, Mice!All the birds are excited about the Big Beaky Bird Ball - except Leonard. His warble-warble waltz with the magpies is more wobble-wobble, and his caw-caw can-can with the crows is a can't-can't. The puffins are prancing, the rosellas are rocking and you should see the flamingo go-go-go! Everyone is jumping and jiving, but not Leonard.
Leonard doesn't dance.
Then an unexpected encounter changes everything ...
From the award-winning creators of Goodnight, Mice! comes a toe-tapping story about finding your own rhythm.

Melbourne illustrator Judy Watson works from her home studio with views over bushland and the Sweetwater Creek. Her work is accompanied by the sounds of many wild birds, bees from the hive in her garden and the rambunctious wrestling of her two dogs. Occasionally one of her hens will crow. (Yes, they do.) She has illustrated over 20 children's books but read a lot more. Her first picture book, Goodnight, Mice!, won the Prime Minister's Literary Award for Children's Fiction. She has teamed up again with Frances Watts to create Leonard Doesn't Dance. It is her most colourful book to date. judywatson.net
