Notable Book
Description
When a magpie is given a marble by a mouse, it begins greedily acquiring more and more objects for its nest, in this fable for readers up to 8. The nest is soon overwhelmed by the ever-increasing piles of coins, keys, toys, and trash, resulting in an inevitable crash. Sobered by the experience, the magpie is reminded of one of life's true treasures—friendship. The author-illustrator of Bats in the Library and Bats at the Beach contributes humorous, detailed acrylic paintings of the greedy bird and his hoard of trinkets and antiques, and I.C. Springman's text is ironically minimalistic.
