Farrar, Straus and Giroux
From Publishers Weekly:
With the same gusto he brought to What Charlie Heard, Gerstein celebrates the accomplishments of another out-of-the-box thinker, John Bardsley.
In 1868, the Englishman imported 1000 sparrows to the United States. This odd historical tidbit, in Gerstein's skilled hands shapes up into a funny and engrossing tale.
Humor and fancy augment every lightly hued, cross hatched illustration...playful touches make these humble creatures (sparrows) soar.
