A Bird Chronicle

A Bird Chronicle 

Learning the alphabet has never before been more fun, or more beautiful. A stunning collection
of birds and letters, words and illustrations, stories and silhouettes, A Bird Chronicle is a
keepsake to treasure for years to come.
A Bird Chronicle showcases the 26 letters of the alphabet alongside 26 beautifully illustrated
birds from around the world from A to Z. There’s Andy the American Kestrel who dives like an
arrow, Big Bird Betsy who’s a bit cheeky and won’t think twice about taking your banana, and
Charlie the Crested Caracara who loves to chase the crab. Part children’s story book and bird
field guide, with a playful nod to art and design mixed with lessons in typography and
gorgeous illustrations.
