Summary
A collection of folktales from around the world, all of which have a bird as a main character. Annotation. For centuries birds and their magnificent ability to fly have inspired tales of mischief, mystery, and enchantment. In a collection that is as beautiful as it is timeless, award-winning author Howard Norman and Caldecott medalists Leo and Diane Dillon offer five bird stories from around the world--including one about an elusive bird that sings like a warthog and another about a much loved quail dying of thirst. This glorious collaboration is the perfect gift for any family library, a book that children and parents alike will treasure
