Doctor Bird: Three Lookin' up Tales from Jamaicaby Gerald Hausman, Ashley Wolff (Illustrator)
Doctor Bird is one smart hummingbird! When he sees Mongoose stealing food, he drops a weather goofball on her house and really teaches that thief a lesson. When MouseÆs home is destroyed by a storm, Doctor Bird teaches him to keep his head up. And when Owl plans to crash a party dressed like Doctor Bird, Doctor Bird teaches him to be himselfùand be proud of it. Presented in the rich storytelling tradition and lush colors of the West Indies, these three tales remind readers that itÆs always best to look up when problems land at your feet. Jamaicans believe Doctor Bird has magical powers, and if you donÆt believe them, just ask Mongoose, Mouse and Owl! Gerald Hausman lives in Bokeelia, FL. Ashley Wolff lives in San Francisco, CA.
