Synopsis: When the giant spruce outside her window is taken away to be the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, Kate is heartbroken. She's heard tweeting and whistling coming from within the tree and is sure there's a bird who makes his nest there. Kate worries the tiny bird will be lonely so far from home. Sure enough, Redbird finds himself in the renowned tree presiding over the world's most famous ice rink, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of Rockefeller Center, and yet alone as he can be. Luckily for the heartsick pair, the holiday season is a time of magic and miracles, when anything can happen. Redbird and Kate just might find some very special helpers to make this Christmas as bright as Redbird's feathers. Peter Maloney and Felicia Zekauskas's joyous, highly original illustrations and crisp, expressive verse, have just the right blend of old-fashioned warmth and modern-day humor to assureRedbird at Rockefeller Centerbecomes a holiday classic.

From Kirkus Reviews: A nonsensical rhyming tale of an unusual Christmas adventure shows the persistence of a heartbroken little girl trying to rescue Redbird. Kate's mother, in a Marge Simpsonlike beehive, complains about the enormous pine growing higher than any tree among the rows of identical houses where she and her daughter live. She cruelly orders it cut down even though a bird may live there: ``About such creatures I don't give a pittance. That tree is going and I say good riddance!'' The lone bird nesting there and Kate are ``sadder than sad'' when the tree is moved to Rockefeller Center to serve as the Christmas tree at the skating rink. There the tree is decorated with hundreds of stuffed red birds, which come to life in a sort of Christmas miracle and carry the tree back to its former home (readers will have to assume that the saw cut that severed it from its roots will heal). Kate's mother finally admits that the tree must ``belong in our yard.'' A mediocre text comprised of tortured meter makes this no easier on readers than the forced plot, but the illustrations are full of humor in the exaggerated lines of cartoons, and in the homely details: hair curlers, puffy slippers, and Kate's omnipresent hair bow.
