Early Bird

Early Bird 
by Tony Yuly
Feiwel and Friends, 2014. Unpaged Picture Book

Early Bird wakes up before the sun.  She stands up tall, takes a deep breath and starts out in search of breakfast.  Down the path, around the corner and over the cat she goes until she finds the garden where Early Worm is already awake.  Will Early Bird get the breakfast she is hoping for?  This is a charming little book for the early risers of the world.  With only a few words per page, and bright, geometric illustrations, Yuly conveys Early Bird's pluck and determination. A surprise ending gives a fun interpretation to the old saying.
