A stunning gift to treasure from the astonishingly talented illustrator of Animalphabet by Julia Donaldson.

Starbird is an original fable about freedom and love. This unique book shimmers with shiny silver foil throughout its pages, and Sharon King-Chai's intricate illustrations of plants and animals are utterly beautiful.

Starbird's songs weave the richest dreams and delight all who hear him, but when the Moon King traps him in a cage, the colour and life in his voice begin to drip away. What follows is a story with the feel of a timeless myth, with the message that that captivity dims even the brightest star.

A heartfelt, lyrical story, and an exquisite gift for any child or adult.
