From the 2016 Tony Award winner for Best Lead Actress in a Play!

Tucked away in an old barn, a wonderful secret waits to be discovered.

Adah and Ilse love visiting their grandmother's farm. There are baby chicks to tend to, dogs to play with, and tadpoles to catch! But best of all, there is a barn full of forgotten treasures to explore.

One rainy afternoon, Adah and Ilse find a beautiful golden birdcage hidden in the barn. Who did it belong to, they wonder? And what happened to the bird who loved inside?

Join Adah and Ilse on an adventure as they learn the story of a little bird named Uccellino.

Editorial Reviews

Jessica Lange is a celebrated actress (two Oscars; two Emmys; five Golden Globes); a talented photographer (50 Photographs); and, by the evidence of this picture book, a fine children's book author as well. It's About a Little Bird is a graceful little summer tale about two sisters, a weathered old barn, a mysterious antique birdcage, and a grandmother whose past and storytelling abilities charm the two young girls.

From the Publisher
""She has produced a uniquely entertaining children's book called It's About a Little Bird. This book sat in my pile to review, and I loved it even before I noticed the byline that reads, "Story and pictures by Jessica Lange." The artwork and story are bright, fresh and different. Even my 7-year-old twins fell hard for this book—the girls, the grandma, the farm and the bird. They ask for it every night."" - Parents.com

""the perfect bedtime story for little kids." " - E! Online

""a lovely tale that's also beautiful to look at" " - Huff Post Parents

"The artwork in this singularly beautiful children's book, featuring photos hand-tinted by the American Horror Story star, will captivate kids as will the tale of two girls who learn the family story behind an old birdcage." - Entertainment Weekly
