A Funny Little Bird

A Funny Little Bird
by Jennifer Yerkes

A Funny Little Bird is a charming book about a white bird that, when backed with the white pages of the book, cannot be seen. He is sad because he is ignored. He then discovers the beauty surrounding him can help boast his confidence. However, he also discovers this new found self assurance provides predators the opportunity to see him. He learns one can be proud, but must be discreet in order to stay safe.

The illustrations add a wonderful element to this moral story. The creation of the little bird through the use of no line, or elimination art is fantastically clever, and a perfect artistic element for this book.
