A Bird Like Himself by Anahita Teymourian


A Bird Like Himself by Anahita Teymourian

One day a large egg is left in a forest. It hatches out a chick who needs care and love. But his mother isn't there! So a wonderfully unlikely assortment of foster parents take over the job of trying to bring that chick up ...


When a fat red chick hatches from the egg all by itself, other animals are not quite sure what to do. They try their best to raise him well and teach him everything, but one thing they cannot do is to teach him how to fly. The chick just can't get it. Until one day he meets a bird quite like himself... This amusing yet profound story is told in witty words and striking images by the Iranian artist Anahita Teymorian, in the beautiful picture book 'A Bird Like Himself'. A real pleasure. -- Klaudia Khan - Discover Magazine
