Birdsong: A Story in Pictures : Toon Level 1, Hardback Book

Birdsong: A Story in Pictures : Toon Level 1 Hardback



Bring the thrilling story of one red bird to life. When an innocent bird meets two cruel kids, their world is forever changed.

But exactly how that change unfolds is up to you, in the tradition of Kamishibai-Japanese paper theater.

The wordless story by master cartoonist James Sturm is like a haiku-the elegant images leave space for children to inhabit this timeless tale-and make it their own, leading them to learn an ultimate lesson they'll never forget. James Sturm is the author of several books for kids including the Adventures in Cartooning series (with Andrew Arnold and Alexis Frederick-Frost) and the forthcoming Ape and Armadillo.

James also helped start a college for cartoonists, The Center for Cartoon Studies, in the small railroad village of White River Junction, Vermont.
