A Bird’s Life

Maria Nilsson Thore, illustrated by Maria Nilsson Thore

In Life on a Perch Maria Nilsson Thore takes us on a be-winged journey through life. With her sensitivity and characteristic shrewd sense of humour she approaches big and small subjects that we all think about. A contemplative and entertaining picture book for both future parents, the philosophical young and for teenagers about to leave home.

A superb gift book, this is a book about life, big and small events— all in bird metaphors. About daring to take the plunge for the first time, about flying in formation or flying high. About how alone you can feel, about sitting on a perch, safe but dull. The pictures are posters to put up on the wall or postcards to send to a friend. They tell stories and express feelings in a most unusual way. Maria has gone one step further with her illustrations and invites us into a fantastic picture world!
