"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 therethe 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."
