Eagle-eyed Joseph charms the birds from the trees

W H Allen senior commissioning editor Jamie Joseph has pre-empted a "charming" title about what humans can learn from birds.

Joseph bought world English-language rights to Philippe J Dubois and Elise Rousseau’s A Short Philosophy of Birds from Editions de la Martinière Littérature, which has just published the title in France.

The book has been pre-empted in Germany and the Netherlands, while Spanish and Korean rights went at auction.
