About the book...

This book is simple and the illustrations are simply stunning.  I have no idea how you can depict feathers so beautifully and intricately but it is accomplished perfectly inside its covers.

On each page is a gorgeous, curious black cat observing all the different types of birds.  Her name is Plume. She appears to the reader to be stalking each unique bird that is presented.  The cat is pursuing for sure, but the reason that is disclosed at the end of the book is a lovely surprise and exposes her gentle, creative nature.  

I think this book is amazing and I love how the author/illustrator opens and closes the book with a visual collection of a variety of bird feather's that are found in nature.  They are all labelled so you can identify the bird from which it originated.  

"Plume" is a charming book that kids (and adults too) will engage in. It is sure to inspire the reader to become avid bird watchers and appreciate the beauty of nature around them. You can play a game of finding out where the cat is hiding all through the story.  I highly, highly recommend this book.
