From Schwartz &
Wade / Random House:
In his most
beautiful, moving and poetic work to date, Bob Staake
explores the universal themes of loneliness, adversity, and the
importance of friendship. Through the pages of this emotional,
duochromatic and completely wordless picture book, readers will
be captivated as they follow the journey of a bluebird as he
develops a friendship with a young boy and ultimately risks his
life to save the child from harm - as tragedy transforms into
triumph. Both simple and evocative, this timeless, profound and
dramatic story is sure to resonate with readers young and old.
It has taken Staake 10 years to complete this book, and he believes
it is the story he was born to tell.
