Gifts of the Magpie

A big-hearted bird, who loves to find things and loves to help, gets tripped up by homonyms and gets everything wrong! Will she ever get it right? Then the bird’s friends take a second look at the goofed gifts and realize that, with a little creativity, the magpie gave them just what they needed. Scrap-illustrations provide a feast for the eyes, and silly word mix-ups tickle the funny bone, letting readers discover the delights of found objects and true friends.

Kirkus Reviews

"STARRED REVIEW! Asked to find specific items for her friends, a well-intentioned magpie seems to get it all wrong—or does she? . . . With its clever wordplay, the text humorously introduces the concept of homonyms. These are explained in a “Did You Know?” section in the backmatter while the “About the Art” section details how scrap artist Hundley assembled found objects on white backgrounds to produce the intriguing, striking illustrations, which appropriately reinforce the magpie’s penchant for finding things. A unique celebration of playful creativity." - Kirkus Reviews
