Item description for The Man Who Put Words On Birds by Julian Borra...

A highly creative and imaginative journey for children, as young Louis sets out with his little blue friend to find out why there are birds flying over his house with words attached to them. He climbs fat mountains, journeys across oceans and battles the King of the Sea, he walks through the Sock Wood, crosses the Bridge of Meringue until at last he finds The Man Who Put Words On Birds. Gloriously illustrated in acrylic and crayon throughout, the stunning artwork has been photographed rather than scanned in order to highlight the textures of the paint. This is a children's picture book for the family to treasure.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Man Who Put Words On Birds?

Words can fly!  Mar 11, 2008
Did you know that words can fly? Children can find out how and why in this wonderfully imaginative story of a small boy's fanstastical journey in search of words. With a bluebird as his companion, he discovers that birds and words (they almost sound the same....) fly in formation and make sentences. The illustrations are a brilliant and colorful part of the journey, my favorite being the Odd Sock Wood ("A place where goblins / And ogres meet / To talk about socks / And wiffy feet!"). The story is told in the kind of verse that Dr. Seuss would approve of--in fact this book is being hailed as "the English Dr. Seuss." The Man Who Put Words On Birds is also a great teaching aid for children learning to read words and sentences.
A book with no meaning  Mar 1, 2008
The silly story and pictures are clearly influenced by Dr. Seuss, but since there's no meaning or point to the story, it completely fails to copy any of the quality of a Seuss book. When the author couldn't think of a meaningful rhyme, he just picked things out of thin air like talking about an "odd sock wood" being "A place where goblins And ogres meet To talk about socks and Wiffy feet!" The book appears to be a miss-mosh of unrelated nonsense poems done by a child and strung together without thought. My 8 year old boy found this whole book meaningless. Maybe a child of 4 or 5 might find the nonsense amusing, but unfortunately there are a sufficient number of complicated words (e.g. vaguely,meringue,absurd) that would surely bore that age group. I'm not sure how this book got published. Don't waste your money.
The Man Who Put Words On Birds is a whimsically delightful picturebook   Jun 10, 2007
The Man Who Put Words On Birds is a whimsically delightful picturebook about a young boy intrigued by the most startling sight - words flying around on birds! He sets out after the birds with words around their necks, and treks across mountains that look like hats, through the dominion of the King of the Sea, past the Old Sock Wood and the Meringue Bridge, all to reach the Man who could answer so much if only the right question could be asked. The colorful illustrations and catchy rhyme are fondly reminiscent of Dr. Seuss' charm in this playful read-aloud story.
