Wren is a beautifully illustrated, heartwarming story about a boy called Wren, who likes peace and quiet and some quality time with his books. Everything in Wren's world is so loud; the traffic outside, the washing up being done, and now, Wren has a brand new baby sister. The rest of the family do their best to stop her crying: with talking, singing, playing music. So Wren decides to move to his grandparents, to get a bit of peace and quiet. But when he starts to miss home, Wren has a tough decision to make...

Sometimes we find what we’re looking for in the most unexpected places.
Wren just wants a bit of peace and quiet. What he gets is the noisiest baby sister you could ever imagine! But when Wren runs away to the country, he discovers that maybe peace and quiet isn’t all he needs …
With bright, modern illustrations and a powerfully simple story, any child (and any parent!) who’s ever had to deal with a noisy sibling will love Wren. This debut from the new team of Katrina Lehman and Sophie Beer is sure to delight.
Wren is a wonderful book all about wanting your own space and needing to share, and maybe sometimes, it being nice to share that space. I think this is a brilliant story for children who are experiencing change in any sense: a new house, a new school, a new sibling... whatever that change may be. Wren is forced to accept change and, at the end of the story, realises that change can be a good thing.
This wonderfully simple story is accompanied by the most gorgeously cheerful and bright illustrations that depict the wonderful chaos of family life. The yellow cover just oozes joyfulness. There are so many great details that older children would love pointing out. This, coupled with the fun rhythmic prose, makes this a great story to read aloud at bedtime.
Wren is recommended for children 0-5 years, but I think this is a great story for young kids of any age all about changing family dynamics and how to still carve out space for yourself.
