Description


Adapted from a traditional tale, this beautifully illustrated picture book tells of hundreds of birds gathering to choose a king. They cannot decide if the king should be the bird with the biggest beak or the one with the most colorful feathers. Finally, after considerable debate, they decide their king will be the bird who can fly the highest. And the winner would seem to be obvious--until a small wren outsmarts them all. From the biggest to the smallest, the fastest to the most abundant, they can all be found here, with a key at the back of the book that identifies the hundreds of species of birds included.
