Little Bird

My fascination for children’s illustrated books began somewhere between
revering Quentin Blake and discovering Maurice Sendak.

Then came along this book, Little Bird, written by Germano Zullo and
illustrated by Albertine.

What happens when you start to take notice of little things?

Daily things. Tiny things.

The story, of course, does not end on this page.

Neither did it end a page previous, where most people I showed this book to sported a content smile. Like an unexpected surprise, they discovered there were more pages.

Those few pages make all the difference.

They make an experience.

“Sometimes,” said Pooh, “the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
