Bird Show by Susan Stockdale
What do you get when you combine ornithology with fashion? Bird Show: a picture book filled with stylized images of eighteen birds. Avians run the gamut from common fowl such as jays and starlings to exotic creatures like the Royal Flycatcher and Marvelous Spatuletail.
Human clothing such as cloaks, aprons, vests scarfs, and gowns describe each bird's feather patterns, coloration, and distinctive markings.
A single bird is the star of each page and is accompanied by a descriptive rhyming couplet. Alternate pages span the double page spread, allowing ample space for expansive wing and tailfeathers. Glorious visual and literary imagery.
