About the Author

Other perennial favorites by Ms. Brown include Nibble Nibble, My World, Where Have You Been?, Christmas in the Barn, The Dead Bird, and Sneakers, the Seaside Cat.

Reviews

"Robinson stays true to the intent of the original text and illustrations but elegantly improves upon it with cinematic storytelling." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Brown takes a direct approach to a difficult subject, suggesting how community rituals provide solace. Robinson concludes with a wide-angle view of growing trees and the children flying a kite, implying a return to carefree fun and putting a poignant distance between the tiny figures and readers." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Robinson's sensitive new mixed-media art, with its personality-rich quartet of young people...and its city-park setting, elicits the children's deeply felt emotions and their actions to honor the bird's memory." -- Horn Book Magazine "The original text is timeless, and the modern, cheerful illustrations will help resurrect this classic for a new generation of readers." -- ALA Booklist "Robinson thoughtfully pays homage to his predecessor while bringing something new to the telling...a lovely book befitting its lineage." -- School Library Journal
