A child and grandfather help a fine feathered friend…Opening itself up to myriad conversations and interpretations, Free is fabulous.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
A boy finds a sick bird on his windowsill and asks his grandfather for help. . . Children familiar with Usher’s Seasons with Grandad series, including Snow (2015), Rain (2017), and Storm (2018), will cheer the return of this adventuresome duo in a new quartet of nature-themed picture books, beginning with this volume. The main characters’ relationship grounds the story so firmly that even the magical flight seems believable. Expressive ink drawings, tinted with watercolors, illuminate the story. An imaginative picture book with broad appeal.
