Starbird by Sharon King-Chai.
A mythical style tale which which starts of with the Moon King capturing the fabled and only ‘Starbird’ as a gift for his daughter. The Starbid’s signing delights and enchants, however a caged environment is no place for it and the daughter soon let’s the bird fly free. An enraged Moon King sets about to capture the bird again forcing it to seek refuge among the many animals of the land.
This book is a rather exquisite creation and beautifully depicted with stylised illustrations and silver foil throughout. It feels like an old legend given a new lease of life and may well bring a tear to the eye at the end.
