KIRKUS REVIEW

Luminous artwork, activities, and stories from around the world combine for an ethereal collection of avian folklore. Six tales have been harvested from the Iroquois, Thai, Yemeni, Ukrainian, Ethiopian, and Japanese traditions. The tellings and radiant paintings capture the essence of the diverse cultures; while most of the stories are available in other collections, the inclusion of several related activities, and the “Feathered Facts” that are scattered throughout the pages, make this a valuable compendium of information, very palatably served. A collection not to be devoured in one sitting, but savored section by section. (index) (Folklore. 4-8)
