From award-winning illustrator Chris Haughton, one of the most exciting new voices in children's literature, comes a brand new picture book about a beautiful bird, an unquenchable desire and plans gone awry...
*Chris Haughton is a hugely talented young British designer, whose picturebooks use modern technology to achieve their simple but striking colour patterns.
* The Irish Times brilliantly sums up why the book is so fantastic and why it is an outstanding design: 'There is a minimalist text of just over 100 words, but it is in the dynamism of the magnificent artwork that Haughton’s creativity is most clearly visible. His combination of collage and silhouette, aided by a judiciously selective use of colour, results in a sequence of images that, in more than one sense, tell their own story. They also manage to reflect the mischief and comedy inherent in a narrative where a group of hapless humans insists on becoming bird-catchers, even if one of them has reservations about their intentions.' Irish Times
"Simply beautiful. A fantastically striking use of colour, and a storybook any parent would be proud to have on their shelf."
