Riassunto: Pops, a man who runs a bird hospital on an island, and his young helper Simon nurse an injured baby bird back to health.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Simon helps his grandfather run a hospital for sick and wounded birds. One day, with Pops' help, he rescues a baby flamingo with a broken leg. He cares for his patient all summer until, reluctantly, he releases Baby in a salt marsh with other flamingos. Readers will see the parallel relationship between Simon and the adults in his life. They are about to let him go off to school just as he is setting his friend free in the wild. Simon is proud of his protegee's accomplishments even though he is sad to see him go. Keller's highly stylized paintings are lovelier than ever. The boy's face is depicted as a circle of one flat shade of brown topped with a black crescent of hair, two tiny squiggly lines for nose and mouth. But his eyes, in spite of the lack of detail, still show a dreamy contentment as parrots perch along his outstretched arms. Wide bands of bright colors decorated with rows of brilliant birds border text on the left and face full-page paintings filled with hot sun, cool shade, and skies of polarized blue. A beautifully oblique tale of passages, Keller's pictures and story are pleasing to both the eye and the heart. Simon is destined to become a favorite with children who are just beginning to loosen their family ties and to form new ones with the larger world. --Ruth Semrau, Lovejoy School, Allen, TX
