Rhoda Levine’s delightful tale of an odd and lovable bird unlike the rest of his flock reminds us that being different can be marvelous, while Everett Aison’s whimsical illustrations of this little bird in a big city bring the story to life. All will delight in Arthur’s bird’s-eye view of New York City in the holiday season.
