Being a passionate bird watcher, this is one of the most beautifully illustrated non-fiction picture books about birds I have come across in a long time. The illustrations were created with old magazine paper, art paper and wrapping paper and show the birds in beautiful simplicity. This is one of Geraldo Valério’s masterpieces.
Georgie and I spent a lot of time flicking through the pages looking at the interesting illustrations and identifying the birds we had spotted when out and about.
My Book of Birds, written and illustrated by Geraldo Valério and published by Wren&Rook.
