A Bird in Winter
Author: Helene Kerillis
Illustrator: Stephane Girel
Taking its inspiration from Pieter Bruegel’s painting The Hunters in the Snow, this lovely picture book, tells of a peasant girl named Mayken who finds a hurt bird one wintry day. She takes the bird home and nurses it until it can fly on its own again. The beautiful illustrations take the readers to snowy valleys, hills and woods, and a glimpse of Bruegel’s painting itself.
