Stunning collages of textured linoleum block prints and watercolors span double-page spreads to showcase the wee yellow bird warily peeking out of his nest on a pine bough as he debates and imagines himself soaring as well as plummeting....An irresistible invitation to test those wings and fly--Kirkus Reveiws (starred review) Lovely ode to setting out on your own. With delicate, quirky rhythm, Meade describes the indecision of a little bird in a comfortable nest.... Combining watercolors, linoleum block printing, and collage, Meade's spreads feature blue and white skies that seem to go on forever, sturdy-looking trees and branches, and an ambivalent yellow bird made of cleverly cut paper....Celebratory and comforting.--Booklist (starred review) "The fledgling perched on the edge of her nest preparing for possible flight is a situation I can feel in the pit of my stomach: possible glory, possible failure. We all find ourselves there, and we make a decision. This story is about that choice, the internal debate that accompanies it, and one possible result."- Holly Meade -- Quote
