Some birds are big, some birds are small, and some birds are just incredibly tall.
Some birds are caged, but most birds are FREE. A much better life, I’m sure you’ll agree!

Swooping and squawking, flapping and fluttering, there are many different kinds of birds in the world, all with their own special traits and abilities. Some Birds celebrates the colors and shapes of beaks and feathers with a rollicking, rhyming text and intricate design. The lively illustrations with a mod, retro feel are full of style and mesmerizing detail.

Some Birds is a lovely gift that will have children and adults tweeting for more from a promising new talent in the design world.

Praise

"Beginning readers will enjoy the Seussian ease of the rhymes, and younger children will soon have the short text memorized... Endearing and great fun to share." 
Kirkus
"Storytime audiences will be encouraged to guess the rhyming words and imitate the actions of the birds; an engaging addition."
School Library Journal
"Spink’s colorful, bulbous birds look as if they’ve flown out of a stained-glass window in this concept book for young readers...Neutral backgrounds showcase the birds’ vibrant plumage, and the colorful text is often printed to mimic a bird’s movement or characteristic."
