Ivy's Pick: How to Heal A Broken Wing by Bob Graham


Ah, Bob Graham.  How can you express such profound sentiment on a face drawn from a single line?  The characters do look awfully familiar... I think these are the same actors he drew in Max, just playing different roles.  

With great economy of speech, dramatic perspective and muted colors highlighted with patches of light, Graham has created another moving picture book which is truly for all ages.  

Ivy asked lots of questions about the bird's "scrape" and was greatly relieved to see her fly away at the end.
