What do a baby blue jay, a kitten, a girl, and a baby squirrel have in common? They are emphatically curious about the world. They find it difficult to leave the place where they feel safest. And, eventually, they must all spread their wings and fly. With his ever-inventive art, Caldecott winner Mordicai Gerstein stretches the boundaries of the traditional picture book, here using speech balloons to show all the characters talking at the same time and energetic pen-and-watercolor illustrations in this celebration of growing up.
