KIRKUS REVIEW

The day birds and the night birds are easy-to-spot specimens, but their songs are a medley of the trite and the ridiculous: ""Overhead when the sun was high a blue bird flew through a bluebell sky;"" ""Way up high on a shining star a starling sang to a soft guitar."" Illustrating the latter, a singing starling tucks a guitar under his wing while he perches on the tip of a five-pointed star. In the pictures, phosphorescent nature; in the text, counterfeit imagination.
