A lonely, invisible
bird mistakenly believes that adorning himself with flashy feathers and
flowers will make him beautiful and win him new friends. Except his plan
quickly backfires when his magnificent plumage attracts the attention
of everyone, even the fox! In his rush to safety the little bird loses
every last bit of his new decorations, making him invisible once again.
Except now in place of his loneliness is the knowledge that putting
others first is the key to friendship and high self-esteem.
About the Author/Illustrator:
Jennifer is an illustrator and graphic artist in Strasbourg, France.
The thing I love the most about this book is the artwork. The
illustrations are gorgeous and really unique. I love picture books that
can deliver a message without sounding preachy. Both of my children and I
really enjoyed this visually pleasing picture book.
