On the Wing
author: David Elliott
illustrator: Rebecca Stadtlander
Take to the sky to explore a glorious array of all things avian, from the tiny, restless hummingbird to the inscrutable horned owl to the majestic bald eagle. David Elliott and Becca Stadtlander bestow a sense of wonder onto such common birdfeeder visitors as the sparrow, the crow, and the cardinal and capture the exotic beauty of far-flung fowl like the Andean condor, the Australian pelican, and the Caribbean flamingo.
“Poetry flutters across the pages of this lovely book. . . . Each poem is witty and thoughtful and enlivens its subject. . . . Every bird seems to come alive.” — School Library Journal (starred review)
