Geraldo Valério has created a visually compelling tome on the native birds of North America.
His use of collage allows an almost geometric artistic interpretation of the birds and one which is highly eye-catching.
Bite-sized pieces of informative data accompany the astute visual narrative and offer a wealth of knowledge on feeding, nesting and migration habits.
This would be a fabulous introduction to birds for any child and offers a fresh and contemporary execution of a well visited subject area.
In our opinion, Groundwood Books are one of the few publishers leading the way in cutting edge, stylised picture books and is one to keep a close eye on over the forthcoming months.
