Synopsis

Imagine a world without birds, night, or color in this thought-provoking and playful picture book from NYT Best Children's Book author Bruce Handy and Ezra Jack Keats Award winning illustrator Ashleigh Corrin.



What if one day, all the birds flew away? Mornings would be quieter. Skies would be plainer. Worms could relax. But there are birds! By asking how our world would change without elements like birds, water, or people, a playful text from Bruce Handy (The Happiness of a Dog with a Ball in Its Mouth) and joyful art from Ashleigh Corrin (Layla's Happiness) invite readers to stretch their imaginations and celebrate the beauty and wonder of existence and all that makes our world what it is.

Her picture book debut, Layla's Happiness, won the 2020 Ezra Jack Keats Award for illustration.
