"In this brilliantly illustrated book, Pili joins her friend Ánugwe in a quest to find out why the birds of the world are losing their colors. This exciting adventure takes the two friends through magical places across one the most biodiverse countries in the world, Colombia. The mission seems simple at first, but as they search for a tiny and almost extinct hummingbird, they realize the problem is on a bigger scale: climate change and deforestation are putting the birds in danger. This story is about friendship and leadership, motivation and resilience, a changing planet and embracing sustainability. Can Pili and Ánugwe bring back the birds' colors? Hand-in-hand with Pili, the reader discovers the adventures of a little girl who travels the world with her dad, National Geographic photographer and Safina Center fellow Kike Calvo. The birds are losing their colors out of sadness because they are losing their homes. A world without colorful birds is a world much less beautiful than the world we were born to. Can Pili find a way to reverse this tragedy, and get the birds' colors back? There is a way. As you'll read in this terrific story."" Carl Safina The Safina Center Bestselling Author and Award-winning Conservationist ""The Adventures of Pili in Colombia is a fable of love and friendship, a quest for answers to explain why the birds have lost their colors. At once full of radiance and joy, sadness and loss, the book encourages children to embrace conservation, to love nature, and to be kind to the world. Kike Calvo has written a beautiful book destined to be beloved by many."" Luanne Rice New York Times Bestselling Author ""Follow the exciting Adventures of Pili as she explores the kaleidoscopic marvels of Colombian nature, its biodiversity and people, threats and conservation. Kike Calvo conjures a magic spell for the child in each of us. You will never be the same and will never want to leave. A true joy of a book."" Thomas Lovejoy."
