Turkey vultures soar on the balmy air, looking for their next stinky feast. These birds don't hunt they like their food to be already dead, and their eating habits serve a very important ecological role. Vultures are part of nature's clean-up crew.

In her signature poetic, energetic style, acclaimed nature writer April Pulley Sayre introduces young readers to the world of the turkey vulture. The gorgeous illustrations by Caldecott Honor winning artist Steve Jenkins capture these birds in all their surprising majesty.

"Vulture View" is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
