Publisher's Description

New York Times selection for Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2017

In this lovely book, young readers are introduced to a variety of beautiful birds, from the familiar chicken to the exotic ibis. But lurking in the background of every page is a cat, who also seems very interested in the birds.

With its funny illustrations and engaging concepts, this clever counting book will invite readers to linger over every page.

Editorial Reviews

"A black cat sneaks its way onto each spread of this lovely look at birds and their unique feathers. A nose here, a bit of tail there—the artfully concealed cat is a clever detail that will keep kids interested in this avian study….Delicately textured and detailed, these illustrations show the patterns, colors, and beauty present in every plume, and readers will appreciate how no two are alike. The large-scale illustrations make this book well suited for group sharing, though the feathers will warrant a closer look, and the mix of new and familiar birds will keep youngsters engaged."

Kirkus Reviews
" Simler portrays her subject matter—birds and their feathers—in finely rendered, realistic detail. . . . Lovely."

School Library Journal
"Exquisitely detailed. . . . Delightful."
