A bird.
A strange egg.
A monkey.

A little bird, flying high in the sky, spies something very beautiful below. She pokes, pecks, and makes a great noise to try and wake it up. Thinking it a very strange egg indeed, she sits upon it. A monkey, watching from a nearby tree, finds this very funny. A bird sitting on an orange. What follows is an original and whimsical tale of wonder, curiosity, and friendship told in the most simple of language and accompanied by delicately bold illustrations.
