The King of the Birds Written and illustrated by Helen Ward

1992 - First Edition - Hardcover - Very good condition - as new with the exception of a 1" rip on dust cover. 40 pages - 10 x 11

Dozens of birds of the world are shown in beautiful color drawings.

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, anatomically accurate and in glorious color with a key at the back of the book that identifies the hundreds of species of birds included.
