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

Starbird is an original fable about freedom and love and the wisdom of the younger generation, able to see more clearly than the adults around them. This unique book shimmers with shiny silver foil throughout pages filled with stunning illustrations of plants and animals as the magical Starbird seeks to escape the clutches of the Moon King.

Starbird's songs weave the richest dreams and delight all who hear him, but when the Moon King traps him in a cage as gift for his daughter, 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 captivity dims even the brightest star.

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