Cambridge couple and VIM members Tom Crice and Ellen Rakatansky have just released Birds of a Feather, a sweet story of loss and recovery for young children. The story is drawn from Tom’s own childhood experiences with his grandfather.
In this thoughtful and universally-appealing tale, a young boy’s happy life is interrupted when his grandfather passes away. Suddenly his world is full of big questions and difficult emotions. Will things ever be normal again?
“Crice captures the complexity of a child’s feelings with expert precision, taking a tough experience and exploring it with honesty. The soft-colored pencil and acrylic images by debut illustrator Rakatansky…match the story’s gentle tone perfectly.” – Kirkus Reviews
