Monday Children’s Book Reviews for April 17, 2017

My Beautiful Birds

My Beautiful Birds by Suzanne Del Rizzo

“Behind Sami, the Syrian skyline is full of smoke. The boy follows his family and all his neighbours in a long line, as they trudge through the sands and hills to escape the bombs that have destroyed their homes. But all Sami can think of is his pet pigeons–will they escape too? When they reach a refugee camp and are safe at last, everyone settles into the tent city. But though the children start to play and go to school again, Sami can’t join in. When he is given paper and paint, all he can do is smear his painting with black. He can’t forget his birds and what his family has left behind.One day a canary, a dove, and a rose finch fly into the camp. They flutter around Sami and settle on his outstretched arms. For Sami it is one step in a long healing process at last.”

Beautiful pictures by the author as well: using mixed media, Del Rizzo creates vivid, imaginative illustrations for her book. [JPB D]

ossiri

Ossiri and the Bala Mengro (2016) by Richard O’Neill and Katharine Quarmby; illustrated by Hannal Tolson

“A Traveler girl creates her own musical instrument from a willow branch and lots of recycled objects. She plays it enthusiastically, but it sounds terrible! Ignoring warnings not to awaken the ogre in the hills, Ossiri goes there to practice playing her instrument. Will she wake the ogre, and will it appreciate her playing? Told by a Romani storyteller and a picture book author, this original tale offers a fascinating insight into Travelling lifestyles and cultures.” [JPB O]

Marlo

Marlo (2017) by Christopher Browne.

“When Marlo’s owner tells him to take a bath, he imagines a wild underwater adventure in which he must find and rescue his friend Duck.” [JPB B]
