Translated by Valérie Rouzeau.
In this bewitchingly magical tale, Bluebird has been taken prisoner by a terribly evil power that wants the contents of the egg she is about to lay. The witch who has captured Bluebird doesn’t know that the egg holds marvels that surpass her understanding, nor that it can count on the power of wisdom and courage, as well as on Rat.
Christopher Logue has woven a fascinating tale of pure wonder, charm and enchantment, one that portrays good and evil as well. Wayne Anderson’s extraordinary illustrations grant luminosity, depth and infinite magic to these pages.
