A Perfect Day for An AlbatrossBook - 2017
From the Cornell Lab Publishing Group and award-winning author and artist, Caren Loebel-Fried, A Perfect Day for an Albatross sweeps you into an albatross's world of wind, rolling seas, boisterous dancing, and their intense commitment to one another and their nestlings.
Set on Midway Atoll, where 72 percent of the world's Laysan Albatrosses make their nests, Mālie, an albatross, must protect her egg until her mate returns. Join Mālie as she dances, hunts, and soars over the ocean swells. Illustrated with original hand-carved, hand-pulled, hand-colored block prints, evoking the culture and habitats of albatrosses, with flowing water-colored block prints that make this title a glorious treat for the eyes, as well as the heart.
A Perfect Day for an Albatross is compatible with Bird QR for streaming sounds, video, and other content. Back matter includes a Bird QR link to watch live albatrosses on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology HD cam in Hawai'i.
