Review #1430 Little Bird by Germano Zullo
Little Bird by Germano Zullo, illustrated by Albertine
Rating: two stars (out of four)
Not really sure what this book was saying - the ending was bizarre. It was interesting to see the story's progression and it definitely had colorful unique pictures. But I wasn't particularly impressed with the illustrations; they weren't my type. I liked the way things were laid out and I felt the pages had been carefuly planned. I didn't really get the ending...it took a different route than I had been expecting. I would't recommend. I read it was because it was listed it as one of the New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of 2012. I wouldn't agree with that sentiment.
