Ten Birds by Jurg Amman

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A wickedly witty tale. Ten fine birds were sitting in a line,
When the fence got smashed, which was not a good sign,
So then there were nign.
Jürg Amann’s clever story in verse tells the tale of ten quirky birds that leave the flock one by one for reasons most unexpected. Helga Gebert’s expressive illustrations depict these funny birds as they meet their fate, then return again.
