Description
(Winner of the 2011 Prix Sorcières—the "French Caldecott") Swiss poet and writer Germano Zullo, the author of many popular children's stories, and Albertine, an illustrator and teacher at the School of Visual Arts in Geneva, together produced this superb, haunting meditation on small acts of kindness that are much bigger than they seem, for readers of all ages. It begins with cartoon paintings of a barren landscape, and an unmarked truck driving through. When the truck reaches the end of the land, the driver opens the back and releases a rainbow-colored flock of birds. Just an ordinary day, the spare text suggests, but one little black bird remains behind, unready to fly away, making this day "something a little more." When the driver shares his lunch with the bird, and then encourages him to fly with outrageous arm-flapping, an unexpected friendship is born—a tiny thing that returns with profound gratitude.
