Caged, Paperback / softback Book

Caged Paperback / softback

Part of the A Wordless Picture Book series

Paperback / softback


In this wordless picture book, a bluebird builds her nest and watches on from the safety of her tree as two eccentric gentlemen construct an enormous palace of caged birds.

But when the gentlemen go in to admire their handiwork, the bluebird has an idea... While a bluebird builds her nest in the forest, two eccentric gentlemen have a more ambitious construction in mind: a vast palatial building, made from birdcages filled with colourful parrots.

As the trees come down and the structure goes up, the bluebird watches on.

More and more caged birds are consigned to their fate until at last a huge dome completes the work. But when the celebrating architects go in to admire their creation, the little bluebird brings their ambitions crashing down around them. A witty tale of freedom and retribution for readers of any age.
