Bring on the birds

Susan Stockdale
Working Title Press
ISBN: 9781921504594           RPP: $24.99

A companion book to Fabulous fishes, very short rhyming captions beneath portraits of the birds refer to some aspect of their behaviour or appearance. At the end of the book are more extensive notes on each of the 22 species included. The illustrations are boldly colourful in flat graphic, realistic style, with the birds portrayed in their natural settings. The crisp presentation will immediately appeal to young readers and those fledgling ornithologists who are a little older.
