    "The eagle is our king," cried the birds on the earth, and the eagle gave a loud cry of happiness. But look! A little bird had been hidden in the feathers on the eagle's back, and when the eagle had gone as high as he could, the wren flew up from his back still higher. King Of The Birds Once upon a time, when the world was very new and when the birds had just learned from Mother Magpie how to build their nests, some one said, "We ought to have a king. Oh, we need a king of the birds very much!" For you see, already in the Garden of Birds trouble had begun.

      (University of New Hampshire Press) Richard King’s The Devil’s Cormorant is a brilliant book. It is scientifically well-informed, serious, funny, and full of good stories; with its kaleidoscopic view of the cormorant, I might call it, tongue not entirely in cheek, a post-modern ornithology, showing how cormorants “signify” so many different things to so many different people. Enter a world of magic and adventure in this stunningly illustrated comic based on traditional Russian folklore and myth. The King of Birds has victoriously defeated the King of Animals, but he is left gravely injured. He promises a merchant a great reward if he can nurse him back to health. Upon his recovery, they travel far across the land to the domains of the King’s three sisters to Price: $
