Editorial Reviews

Review

Incorporating elements of a fable with a style vaguely reminiscent of David Macaulay or Arthur Geisert, this quietly dazzling selection is a subtle celebration of individuality and creativity. Appealing, unique and not to be missed. --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Cybèle Young is an internationally renowned artist, represented by galleries in New York, London, Vancouver and Calgary.

She was nominated for a Governor General's Award for Illustration in 2000, and has written and illustrated two titles (Ten Birds, Kids Can Press, and A Few Blocks, Groundwood Books).

More About the Author

Cybèle Young is an internationally renowned artist, represented by galleries in New York, London, Vancouver and Calgary. She studied sculpture and printmaking at the Ontario College of Art and Design, and has since been awarded over
twenty arts grants and awards, and has received considerable notice is such publications as Art in America, Canadian Art magazine, the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Now magazine, Fibre Arts, Maclean's, Elle and Toronto Life.
Her work resides in major collections around the world.

Young creates miniature sculptural works from fine Japanese papers. Her inspirations come from fleeting day-to-day experiences while her creativity flourishes in the mundane, where small observations become fantastic. The results are works that emerge from familiar motifs abstracted by passing impressions.

Young compiles these sculptures to create communities that interact and form new relationships - much like how the small seemingly insignificant moments in our everyday lives can come together to create unexpected outcomes.

Format: Hardcover
Funny. A counting story as well as a lesson about life...where brilliant isn't always better. Your little one will love the simplicity of this story with the funny illustrations of each bird devising a way to cross the bridge. He will love how the last one accomplishes this feat. This is sure to encourage creative thinking as well as common sense and self-confidence--all in that subtle way that children don't notice because they love the story so much. You will, too. - Biblio Reads Children's Book Review

Such a beautiful book -- both in the sweet humor of the story and the illustrations. I ordered this for a child but there's no way he's getting his grubby mitts on it. I'm keeping it!

A really unique book. I love the moral of the story, my 3 year old loves the countdown and the creative ways the numbers are formed. I haven't seen any other books like it - not an easy feat when it comes to kids' books.

I loved this book. It is great for counting down from ten. The art is creative. The bird names are words kids do hear in school and then could discuss. Personally my favorite was Needs Improvement. This book works on so many levels and in so many ways. I think all who read it could find something new and different to look at or discuss each time they read it. It's a keeper and should be in every school library for sure.
