For a parent it's fun to read. Very few words mean the pictures have to work hard to tell the story. And they do. A family is out to catch a bird in their nets. The littlest family member wants to talk to the bird but is always shhed while the bigger family members use nets, ladders and other tools... but still can't catch him. Will someone succeed?
A wicked sense of humour pervades - size isn't everything. Simplicity often works best. And it's not always good to get what you wanted...
Simply but effectively (and memorably) illustrated. Very distinctive style. And excellent use of the simplest of text, that burgeoning readers will find themselves able to read.
Read it twice through to my three-year-old and we both laughed at all the mishaps and the ending.
