Publisher Comments:

Are you ready to soar? Young readers can let their imaginations take flight in Sounds of the Wild: Birds, the extraordinary new title from acclaimed illustrator Maurice Pledger. Five dazzling 3-D pop-up panoramas are enhanced with real bird sounds, bringing the wondrous world of birds to life. With colorful, detailed artwork and informative text, this book takes readers on a journey across the globe — from lush wetlands and tropical forests to remote deserts and mountains — to discover all types of birds big and small.

About the Author

Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He's had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending hours in the field observing, sketching, and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at age 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including Sounds of the Wild, Peek-and-Find, Nature Trails, and Pledger Sticker Books. He was the recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
