The Book of Magical Birds is an anthology and, at the same time, a statement of love for birds. Heloisa Prieto gathers poems, biblical stories, myths, legends, and tales about birds, from various cultures and different places around the world. Pervaded by freedom and fantasy, the narratives offer readers an idea of how important birds are to people’s imagination, in such distinct places, times and traditions. Laurabeatriz’s beautiful illustrations recreate, in delicate lines and strong colors, the literary images offered by the text.
