9780142402719: Days of the Blackbird

In this elegant tale, Tomie dePaola imagines how the Days of the Blackbird in northern Italy came to be. Gemma and her father, the Duke of Gennaro, live in a house with a courtyard that fills with birds of all colors through the spring and summer. When the Duke falls ill at the end of summer, Gemma begs the birds to stay to raise his spirits with their song. However, as snow and fierce winds begin to swirl down on the village, the birds must fly south to stay warm, and eventually only one loyal bird remains.

Review:

A successful and satisfying union of narration and illustration. (School Library Journal) Fresco-style artwork-the colors washed and clean-accompanies this testament to friendship, fidelity, and generosity; fittingly, the story radiates warmth. (Kirkus Reviews)
