Flock

Written by: Cassidy, Sara
Illustrated by: Valério, Geraldo
ages 3 to 6 / grades P to 1

In this fantastical story, a flock of feathery friends show up for a feast!

Lunch turns into bird food when a little girl starts feeding birds at the bus stop. First, a pigeon she names Serious comes pecking, and then Fancy and Sleepy gather to gobble up the offerings. But what happens when more and more birds want to join in on the feast? And what are all these fantastical birds doing in the city, anyway?

This delightfully outlandish story by Sara Cassidy, beautifully illustrated by Geraldo Valério, creator of My Book of Birds and Busy, Busy Birds, explores a child’s wonder, a parent’s preoccupation and an ordinary afternoon that escalates into a surreal adventure.
