Starbird – Sharon King-Chai
Starbird is an original folk story about love and freedom. It is the story of the moon king who wants the most precious present in the world for his daughter; the starbird which sings the most beautiful song.
However the daughter notices that the caged bird is not happy and sets it free. Furious with his daughter for, he thinks, throwing the present that he gave her back in his face he sets off to capture the bird again.
The beautiful illustrations cover both daytime and night-time scenes and the night-time scenes are almost a bit of a hide and seek game within the book with the animals of the night reduced to shadows.
