Join Ruby, a plucky little bird, as she ventures through life, making new friends, learning new skills and asking questions which may have some very surprising results.

 

Fearless Ruby's search for adventure, friendship and her place in the world comes to life through acclaimed author/illustrator Philip C. Stead's whimsical illustrations and succinct, charming text.

 

 

About the Author

Philip C. Stead is the author of the 2011 Caldecott Medal book, A Sick Day for Amos McGee. His most recent book, A Home for Bird, received four starred reviews and was called "a deeply satisfying story" by Kirkus. Philip lives with his wife, illustrator Erin E. Stead, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

 

Review:

"Stead’s flora-filled settings and free-spirited style will feel happily familiar to readers of A Home for Bird (2012); the fresh storyline follows the range of reactions to an extroverted personality. . . A final encounter helps the heroine and readers comprehend and value the concepts of name and identity—and the blessings that reaching out to a diverse community bestows." -- Kirkus Reviews
