Publication Date: May 24, 2005
Mr. Bird thinks his nest is the best in the world--until Mrs. Bird tells him it's all wrong. Adapted from P. D. Eastman's classic The Best Nest, simple and sturdy flaps, wheels, and slide tabs bring Mr. and Mrs. Bird's quest for "the best nest" to life when their "mailbox-nest" gets a delivery, their "church-bell" nest cling-clangs, and a storm blows them into the best nest of all. And you can guess which one that is.
About the Author
P. D. Eastman was an author-illustrator who created many children's books, including Are You My Mother?, Go, Dog. Go!, and The Best Nest. Trained at the National Academy of Design, he enlisted in the army in 1943 and was assigned to the Signal Corps Film Unit--which was headed by Theodor Geisel, who would eventually become known to the world as Dr. Seuss. After Geisel later approached him to write for his new Beginner Book series at Random House, Eastman published his first book, Sam and the Firefly. Since then, Random House has sold more than 30 million books by P. D. Eastman, and he has become one of the most beloved children's book authors in the world.
