Birds of a Feather Book Excerpt:

Differences are gorgeously illustrated in a heartwarming picture book about a colorless peacock who learns to love himself in a jungle full of color. Mo has always felt a little different. While all the other peacocks grew bright, bold, beautiful feathers in rich greens and vibrant blues, Mo's feathers grew in a snowy white. And even though Mo's friends try to include him in their playtime, Mo doesn't like to be reminded that he's different from his friends. But when a storm threatens to ruin the group's annual celebration, Mo must learn to stand tall, strut his stuff, and shake his brilliantly glowing tail feathers--in a way only he can--to help his friends and set things right. From debut author Sita Singh, and brought to life by Stephanie Fizer Coleman, comes a story about finding strength in the things that make us different, and beauty in all its forms.

When exotic pet–sitter Belinda Blake starts pecking at the details of a suspicious accident in her sleepy hometown, she inadvertently digs up a murder case that won’t be solved without ruffling a few feathers . . . The moment Belinda arrives in Larches Corner, her Upstate New York hometown, she’s immediately recruited to care for a deceased friend’s flock of homing pigeons. But Belinda’s plans for a swift visit scatter after a local college student is mowed down in a malicious hit-and-run that has the whole town reeling.

Birds of the Same Feather Book Excerpt:

Imagine being a bird who cannot see well! That is the dilemma that Bobo, a sweet cockatiel living in the Australian forest, deals with everyday. His poor eyesight makes it difficult for him to see images that are off in the distance and it makes it especially difficult for him to land properly. To make matters worse, the other birds in the forest always make fun of him. What can Bobo do about that? He can listen to the advice given to him by a wise, old wompoo fruit dove named Gerald. While Gerald’s advice requires Bobo to rely on courage he isn’t sure he has, it ultimately greatly improves Bobo’s situation, teaches him to stand up for himself, and helps him make friends, even with the bullies. Bullies, after all, as Bobo comes to realize, are usually bullies because of their own insecurities and worries. Sometimes they just need to be shown a little kindness.

Birdsong starts sounding like a love song when bird whisperer Inusaki meets a crow that sounds oddly like a handsome young man he knows!

That is until the day he meets an intriguing and strangely handsome crow he just can’t get off his mind!

Why do they sound so similar, and why can’t Inusaki stop blushing whenever Kuro the crow crosses his mind?!

Inusaki can communicate with birds—and some of them are real jerks! Tired of the incessant chatter, he spends most of his day tuning them out.

Ever since he was a child, private detective Inusaki has had the unenviable talent of being able to communicate with birds. And even though he’s never liked birds, he somehow ends up getting his heart broken by one! Conveniently there to pick up the pieces, though, is his landlady’s son, Mitsuru, whose voice sounds suspiciously like that of the fowl heartbreaker, Kuro. And it’s not long before Mitsuru confesses his feelings to the clueless detective, even landing a quick peck. Will Inusaki the private dick ever stop brooding long enough to get a clue?
