Top of the Shelf: Seed Magic

Seed Magic

by Jane Buchanan, illustrated by Charlotte Riley-Webb (Peachtree) The book reads almost like a song, starting with Birdman's joy in feeding pigeons. He sees a beauty those around him don't, though the bold paintings make it clear to readers. Rose accepts the seeds Birdman usually scatters for birds, and sets them on a windowsill. After watching, waiting, and dreaming, she's rewarded with a singing garden of birds. The short, simple, and beautiful text is a perfect match for the vivid colors, painted with wide, wonderful strokes.
