"Colorful watercolor paintings illustrate this multicultural story. When a sparrow flies into a subway car, a young Oriental girl tries to rescue it. She enlists the aid of a teenage boy, a Spanish-speaking woman, and a Polish-speaking man. The illustrations are filled with wonderful details. . .The brief text, which includes phrases in Spanish and Polish, advances the plot while allowing the illustrations to convey the action. . .A special book." --School Library Journal "A charming multicultural vignette, ingeniously constructed, nicely paced, and altogether disarming." --Kirkus Reviews
