yay! So happy the library is getting this book! It has been so talked up. Can't wait to read it for myself

Update: Picked this book up today, and it is definitely a special book. Some might say that it will resonate more with adults than kids. I don't know about that, but it's a sweet commentary on young puppy love and the lengths we will go to impress. I love the line "I don't look at birds the same way I did before." When we love someone, we love what they love and we see beauty in the things that they see beauty in.

One of the most overlooked awesome picture books of 2016, this little Canadian gem is not to be missed. The illustrations are wacky and visually playful! A charming story about a little boy who has a crush on a little girl, however all she loves are birds. Realizing this he does his best to become what she loves most in the whole world. Hence, the day he became a bird. Don't worry it has the happiest ending of all. He is most definitely liked best for who he is i.e. not a bird. So darn adorable.
