- Created by Duncan Annand
While a bluebird builds her nest in the forest, two eccentric gentlemen have a more ambitious construction in mind: a vast palatial building, made from birdcages filled with colourful parrots. As the trees come down and the structure goes up, the bluebird watches on. More and more caged birds are consigned to their fate until at last a huge dome completes the work. But when the celebrating architects go in to admire their creation, the little bluebird brings their ambitions crashing down around them.
The third in our Wordless Picture Book series, after Little Eli and Chalk Eagle, Caged is a witty tale of freedom and retribution for readers of any age.
