From iconic award-winning and NY Times bestselling children's author of more than 370 books, Jane Yolen, and award-winning illustrator, Bob Marstall, On Bird Hill is a wonderful new picture book created in collaboration with the esteemed Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the world authority on birds.
On Bird Hill is first in a new Jane Yolen series created for the Cornell Lab, loosely based on the old cumulative nursery rhyme/song "The Green Grass Grew All Around," a nursery rhyme first published as a song in 1912 with words by William Jerome and melody by Harry Von Tilzer. But in this version, it's a boy and his dog who find the bird in a nest on a hill in a strange valley.This beautiful and enchanting story is sure to attract interest from millions of readers and fans of Jane's popular classics.
As with all Cornell Lab Publishing Group books, 25% of the net proceeds from the sale of On Bird Hill goes directly to the Cornell Lab to support projects such as children's educational and community programs.
