    A black cat sneaks its way onto each spread of this lovely look at birds and their unique feathers. A nose here, a bit of tail there—the artfully concealed cat is a clever detail that will keep kids interested in this avian study. Every double-page spread reveals a clean-lined digital rendering of a bird situated against a white backdrop, with its name printed below. They range from the exotic (peacock and flamingo) and commonplace (duck and pigeon) to songbirds (nuthatch and parrotfinch) and poultry (guinea fowl and turkey). The showstoppers, however, are the individual feathers scattered beside each bird. Delicately textured and detailed, these illustrations show the patterns, colors, and beauty present in every plume, and readers will appreciate how no two are alike. The large-scale illustrations make this book well suited for group sharing, though the feathers will warrant a closer look, and the mix of new and familiar birds will keep youngsters engaged. The book concludes with a brief word from the mysterious feline, and feathered endpapers make for a nice final touch. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
