Product description

Review

“A lovely, satisfying parable of beauty and generosity . . . richly evocative of Far Eastern Art.” —The New York Times

“The beauty of this book lies . . . in its luxury, its aesthetic, its gorgeous densely colored patterns of trees and ushes, and the birds themselves.” —The Boston Globe

“Children will take the hopes and wishes of the little bird born without wings to their hearts. . . . A lovely book, and one that cannot but leave a lasting impression.” —The Saturday Review

“Truly a beautiful book.” —McCalls

From the Inside Flap

wingless bird wants is a pair of golden wings to carry him up over the mountaintops. But when Tico's wish is granted, none of his friends will talk to him. What's so wrong with being different? Tico wonders all alone. One day Tico helps a crying man by giving him one of his golden feathers. A black feather appears in its place. Each day he gives a feather away to someone in need until his golden wings are as black as India ink. When Tico returns to his friends, they are all relieved to see him. "Now you are just like us," they say. But Tico knows there is more to him than the color of his wings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sobre diferenças, amizade e bondade

Nesta fábula de Leo Lionni, Tico é um pássaro que não tem asas mas que tem bons amigos. Quando aparece uma oportunidade de ter um desejo realizado ele pede asas de ouro e perde os amigos que acham que ele se acha agora melhor que eles. Outras coisas acontecem e o final é surpreendente.

Um livro que fala sobre diferenças, amizade e bondade.
