Overview

If you haven't heard of a fird, part fish, part bird, you don't know that he's looking for a herd of fird. He wants to find out if he's "firding" right. You see, Fird was raised by a nest of Dicken's, part dog, part chickens, but they've never heard of a fird, and they don't know if he's "firding" right.

So Fird sets out to find a herd of Fird. Along the way, he meets many two-feature creatures, whimsical animals like shamels-part sheep, part camels, and bertles-part bears, part turtles. But no one has heard of a herd of fird.

While Fird has no luck finding a herd of fird, he discovers something far more important. He learns that he can be whatever her wants to be, without looking anywhere outside of himself.

Shann Hurst's beautiful illustrations will delight young readers, and Ms. Bach's entertaining story conveys a powerful moral in a fresh and amusing way.

Meet the Author

Othello Bach , author of 18 published books, grew up in an orphanage. Despite her humble beginning, she wrote a bestseller at the age of 24 and sold it to Avon Books. Her next two popular novels sold to Zebra Books, and then she turned her attention to the challenging world of children's books. She composed her first song in grade school, so it was natural for her to bring music to her children's books. She has 37 songs recorded by stage and screen stars Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes and Sandy Duncan.

    Fird isn┬┐t sure if he is firding right. You see, Fird is part fi

    Fird isn’t sure if he is firding right. You see, Fird is part fish, part bird, but no one has ever heard of a Fird, so they can’t help him (Fird was raised by a nest of Dickens (part dog, part chicken). Fird and his friend, Snyder Spider, set off to find a herd of Fird. They meet a lot of two feature creatures (like Shamels (part sheep, part camel), Hyenants (part hyena, part ant) and Girouses (part giraffe, part mouse) but no Firds. Fird and Snyder travel far and wide on their journey to figure out how to fird correctly. They run into some friendly and some not so friendly two-feature creatures. Fird never gives up hope and one day he sees another Fird (part fish, part bird), but even though this Fird looks just like him the creature claims to be a Bish (part bird, part fish). The Bish tells Fird he’s a Bish too and Bishes really don’t do anything but bunch in bushes. Fird is not happy he is a Bish. Fird likes to sing and dance. He doesn’t want to just bunch in a bush, but it seems that is what he is supposed to do. Will Fird ever figure out who he really is?

    This book had a great message. After all that searching Fird finds out he already is who he is supposed to be and already acts the way he is supposed to act because he is himself and doesn’t need a herd to tell him what to be. The story is well written and is fun to read. There are a lot of words in the book and some harder words so I think it would have to be a read aloud for young kids. There is an audio book version of the book that my sister and I enjoyed listening to. The story has songs in it and on the CD they are sung by all the different characters, which is nice. The plot of the story was very unique (like all the different animal combinations). The illustrations were very detailed and it was nice how even the background colors changed from page to page. The two feature creature illustrations were cool (but I did find a couple a bit creepy, like the Snooze, but he was supposed to be creepy). Snyder Spider is seriously cute.
    **Note I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
