Product Details

Praise

A child imagines, designs, and builds a bird only to let it go and watch it soar through the clouds. . . Observant readers will catch subtle visual details that flesh out more of this lyrical, visually beguiling tale. This story, infused with an ethereal, wondrous tone, is for creative souls everywhere, those who know what it is to imagine something and to experience the joy of bringing it to life with care—and the bittersweet feeling of letting it go and moving on. . . Imaginatively stirring and altogether haunting, this one stays with you.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

An elegant, confident voice narrates this gently uncanny second-person-perspective book, following a brown-haired, light-skinned child who builds a bird from scraps, watches it come alive, and sets it free. . . . A beautiful rumination on creating.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
