Some birds are big, some birds are small, and some birds are just incredibly tall.
Some birds are caged, but most birds are FREE. A much better life, I'm sure you'll agree!

Swooping and squawking, flapping and fluttering, there are many different kinds of birds in the world, all with their own special traits and abilities. Some Birds celebrates the colors and shapes of beaks and feathers with a rollicking, rhyming text and intricate design. The lively illustrations with a mod, retro feel are full of style and mesmerizing detail.

Some Birds is a lovely gift that will have children and adults tweeting for more from a promising new talent in the design world.

Booklist Review: "Spink's colorful, bulbous birds look as if they've flown out of a stained-glass window in this concept book for young readers. Highlighting a variety of traits, the rhythmic text tells how some birds swoop / and some birds squawk / some birds soar high, / while some birds just walk. Each descriptive phrase is illustrated with a unique bird sometimes easily identifiable, such as an eagle or penguin, other times more generic in appearance. Neutral backgrounds showcase the birds' vibrant plumage, and the colorful text is often printed to mimic a bird's movement or characteristic. Letters rest akimbo as birds flutter and flap, while a sentence curves above a sparrowlike fellow making high-arching hops. After seeing many different ways birds can look, sound, or move, readers encounter a dejected bird in a cage. Happily, though, its confinement is short-lived. The large, uncluttered illustrations make this book easy to share with a group, and its simple text lends itself well to preschool storytimes.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Colorful, barrel-chested birds with extravagant plumage in geometrical shapes star in this visually rich offering. "Some birds twitch,/ some birds tweet,/ and some birds swim fast with webbed flipper feet," reads a typically upbeat rhyme. It's less an introduction to specific birds than a freewheeling poem, though readers will likely recognize penguins, an eagle, and a woodpecker that makes holes "with a rat-a-tat-tat!" There's a hint of 1970s-era psychedelia in the birds' feathers; with thick outlines and jewel-like colors, they resemble kaleidoscope patterns. Spink also emphasizes how being a free bird beats the alternative: "Some birds are caged,/ but most birds are free./ A much better life I'm sure you'll agree." Ages 3-5.
