nothing can prepare James Shannassy for the afternoon when he meets a figment bird called Archit and the two of them set off for the world of Nalgordia to break a centuries-old curse. Being the hero of his own fantasy adventure isn't exactly what James expected it to be, but when he finds himself caught up in an epic fight against a force of evil, he knows he might be the only one able to stop it. Archit's fate now rests entirely in his hands...and there's no turning back now!
The Purple Bird seems to be a story that can be read by the YA genre but could also be read with younger children. Maybe not read by a younger child alone, but definitely read together with an adult or maybe even a read-aloud type of session. It’s cute. Its sentences are short, and easy to understand. Amongst all this is a very imaginative and fun tale of poor James becoming a much bigger hero than he ever imagined.
