Four people go into the woods with a net. They spot a bird and try to catch it. The smallest person tries to talk to the bird, but his friends keep telling him “Shh! We have a plan”. Eventually when their many plans fail, the little person gets bread crumbs out and attracts many birds. The other three people try to catch a bird in their net, but they get chased off by a big bird.
This is a cute and simple story. The illustrations are really dark (different shades of blue), but they are still fun to look at. The humor of the story is fun too.
