South Author by Patrick Mcdonnell

Absolutely charming and wordless story of friendship and helping others in trouble. The drawings are simple and poignant, and allows the reader(s) to narrate the story for themselves. I've given this book to German children in Berlin, and the lack of language is a plus, although the theme is universal.

A Home for Bird by Phillip C. Stead

How does he do it? Author/illustrator Stead has created another masterpiece to add to the canon of best friend books. Here Vernon the frog befriends an (inanimate) cuckoo bird who doesn't speak--Vernon assumes because he's homesick. So the two friends set off to find "home." Take one cup of Jeffers' LOST AND FOUND, add 4 tablespoons of WHEN BLUE MET EGG and handsell to any fan of the Bonny Becker Bear & Mouse books. And don't miss the copyright page!
