A clever counting book and fable unlike any other and winner of the 2011 Governor General's Award for Illustration.

Ten birds are trying to figure out how to get to the other side of the river. The bird they call ?Brilliant? devises a pair of stilts. The bird they call ?Highly Satisfactory? engineers a raft. One by one, nine resourceful birds make the crossing until a single bird is left behind - the one they call ?Needs Improvement.? This bird's solution proves surprising - and absurdly simple.

More than a counting book, Ten Birds is a witty story that highlights ingenuity, common sense and the inadequacies of labels. Cybèle Young's intricate chiaroscuro pen-and-ink drawings depict a rich alternative world that both children and adults will marvel over.
