The Last Rainbow Bird

We rated this book:


Jo and Alex follow the desperate sound of cries all the way to Professor Feather’s home perched in the treetops. When they enter, they’re startled to witness him strewn across his desk in a state of despair. He announces he must find a mate for the only Rainbow Bird he has, or he’ll fail to save them from extinction. They offer to help and set off on an adventure to find the last Rainbow Bird in the wild. They encounter Underwater Birds and Lamp Birds and a plethora of other magical varieties until, suddenly, they see the most magnificent bird imaginable up ahead in the distance.

This story is a crafty combination of fantasy and realism. The House Birds have an eclectic community of their own. They sunbathe in bikinis, chat with their neighbors, and hang their clothes out to dry. They are certain to evoke ripples of laughter and draw the watchful, curious eyes of young children as they travel through the pages.

The target age range is youth ages five to eight. The older ones will appreciate the focus on wildlife conservation delicately woven through the tale. The author even includes a special message describing how scientists protect some of the most endangered species.
