    A New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2016!
    This heartwarming classic picture book by beloved children’s book author Margaret Wise Brown is beautifully reillustrated for a contemporary audience by the critically acclaimed, award-winning illustrator Christian Robinson.
    One day, the children find a bird lying on its side with its eyes closed and no heartbeat. They are very sorry, so they decide to say good-bye. In the park, they dig a hole for the bird and cover it with warm sweet-ferns and flowers. Finally, they sing sweet songs to send the little bird on its way.

“Robinson stays true to the intent of the original text and illustrations but elegantly improves upon it with cinematic storytelling.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Brown takes a direct approach to a difficult subject, suggesting how community rituals provide solace. Robinson concludes with a wide-angle view of growing trees and the children flying a kite, implying a return to carefree fun and putting a poignant distance between the tiny figures and readers.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Robinson’s sensitive new mixed-media art, with its personality-rich quartet of young people…and its city-park setting, elicits the children’s deeply felt emotions and their actions to honor the bird’s memory.” (Horn Book Magazine)

“The original text is timeless, and the modern, cheerful illustrations will help resurrect this classic for a new generation of readers.” (ALA Booklist)

“Robinson thoughtfully pays homage to his predecessor while bringing something new to the telling...a lovely book befitting its lineage.” (School Library Journal)

    “Over the years, I’ve had to make the most out of all kinds of work spaces, from my grandmother’s living room floor to a dining room table. As an adult, my first workspace was my 10x10 bedroom in a shared house with many roommates in San Francisco. A big source of joy in my life these days is having a space all to myself dedicated to making stuff. I converted what was once my dusty, bare-bones garage into a light-filled creative sanctuary. I wanted to make a book where all kinds of children could see themselves on the page. As a child, I loved stories in which the main character goes on some magical adventure to a world where anything is possible. Oftentimes, those characters didn’t look like me or come from a community that reflected my own. I want kids today to have a different experience.”

글작가 정보
  • 마가렛 와이즈 브라운(Margaret Wise Brown)
  • Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn"t the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.
