Amazon Description

Everybody has a song
Igor has been looking forward to spring, when he will sing for the first time in his life. But when the Dawn Chorus begins, the other birds laugh at the notes coming out of his beak. After unsuccessful voice lessons, Igor decides never to sing again and sets off to find a place where there is no music. He roams the globe, which is surprisingly abundant in song, until, at last, he finds a lonely, empty plain where it is quiet. Heartbroken, Igor roosts on a rock until a splendid sunset moves him so much that he breaks his vow of symphonic silence.

Distinctive and artistic illustrations filled with energetic details make this a wonderful story about a bird who ultimately realizes he is not as alone or atonal as he had thought.
