"What is truly special here is the beauty of the soft artwork, which has the feel of watercolor.... Close-ups make the squabbling feel immediate….A visual delight." - Kirkus Reviews
In the wide savanna there are three birds named Ade, Emem, and Nuru, that live on the back of an elephant. They are best friends. But one day the wind blows a bright speckled feather into their midst, and in no time their peacefulness is over.
A thought-provoking story about friendship by debut author-illustrator Johanna Ries.

Age appropriate. Lustrous artwork. Beautifully written. Totally engaging. I can't imagine a better children's book that helps decipher greed from friendship. Cooperation is a must and toxicity will tarnish one's soul. Who want's a bunch of malarkey because when bird's of a feather flock together they usually stay together. In this case, things became out of hand and the elephant wasn't happy. A fab read by Johanna Ries. Thank you to Johanna Ries, the pub, NetGalley, and Amazon Kindle.
The illustrations for this book are stunning, truly. The animals are very realistic, and you can feel the movement as if they are going to pop off the page. This is a great book for littles who love to look at pictures of wild animals or learn about wild animals.
