Description of this Book

A stunning gift to treasure from the astonishingly talented illustrator of Animalphabet by Julia Donaldson. Starbird is an original fable about freedom and love. This unique book shimmers with shiny silver foil throughout its pages, and Sharon King-Chai's intricate illustrations of plants and animals are utterly beautiful. Starbird's songs weave the richest dreams and delight all who hear him, but when the Moon King traps him in a cage, the colour and life in his voice begin to drip away. What follows is a story with the feel of a timeless myth, with the message that that captivity dims even the brightest star. A heartfelt, lyrical story, and an exquisite gift for any child or adult.

Author's Bio

Sharon King-Chai is an enormously talented designer, illustrator and writer. Having grown up in Australia, she moved to London in 2003 and since then has brought her style and eye for beautiful design to album artwork, book covers, stationery and her own books Lucy Ladybird, Snail Mail and Animalphabet, a collaboration with Julia Donaldson. Sharon has a passion for innovation, and her artwork and clever use of paper cutting and finishes encourage the reader to think differently about the pages they hold in their hands.
