Call Number: J PARENT COLL. Elliott
An African-American boy nicknamed Bird uses drawing as a creative outlet as he struggles to make sense of his grandfather's death and his brother's decline into drug addiction. Told with spare grace, Bird is a touching look at how a young boy copes with real-life troubles. Readers will be heartened by Bird's quiet resilience and moved by the healing power of paper and pencil. Winner of Lee & Low's New Voices Award.
