Inspired by the Russian folk tradition. On the stillest of summer nights in Blue Forest, a dashing blue bird takes a message to Nikolai- his child has just been born. He and his partner name her Natasha. Natasha grows, wanting for nothing and desiring many things... which brings its own problems. Then one day, she encounters a mysterious older woman with blazing eyes who conjures up an exquisite blue bird. And with that, Natasha's life lesson is about to begin. A gently cautionary tale about sharing and kindness. Grand storytelling, lavish full-bleed double page illustrations, Slavic motifs. A perfect read aloud. Age 5-9, Paperback 30pp
