Celeste is a marvelous character with a wondrous vocabulary.
This is a suspenseful story even for those not usually fans of animal fantasy. Facts about Audubon are seamlessly worked into the plot.
The book is attractive both for its rich language and for its detailed drawings. This would make a gripping read aloud choice.

Included in the White House Library presented to President Obama on January 20, 2011, by the American Booksellers Association.
