"From vivid wildlife documentaries to the 'put a bird on it' trend,
birds are so hot right now. If you can't get enough of their weird
dances, one-of-a-kind songs or otherworldly plumes, look no further
than Misha Maynerick Blaise's Crazy for Birds . . . Blaise's
humor shines as brightly as her whimsical, vibrant illustrations,
and both work together to perfectly capture the dazzling
strangeness of our avian friends."
