The Baby Sparrow In Jack’s Beanstalk

blue-tit-branch.jpg

The baby sparrow who lived in Jack’s beanstalk tree went looking for twigs to make a nest, he was tired and needed a rest. The honey made by the honey bee stuck his feet to the leaves of the tree. He tried to climb to the top branch, one day, but couldn’t get free. As the sparrow took a closer look at some of the ants – his nose got covered in honey and then in plants ! As the sparrow brustled, the leaves rustled. The ladybird thought that it could be – a leafy monster coming towards him urgently (which was probably going to eat him for tea !). The sparrow tweeted to the owl to beware – a monster was coming covered in leafy hair ! The sparrow tweet back – “Go and get Jack !”, by the time he arrived, the branches had started to crack. All he wanted was a slug, to nibble perhaps, or a tasty bug. But when the woodpecker came to take a look, he saw that the sparrow was completely stuck ! You wouldn’t believe the time that it took … getting the baby sparrow unstuck so he could once again cluck !
