Aviary Wonders Inc. Spring Catalog and Instruction Manual:  Renewing the World’s Bird Supply Since 2031 – Kate Samworth  (2014, Clarion Books, Boston)

It’s 2031 and there are no living birds left in the world, but you want one as a pet.  So, what do you do?  Why, you order all the parts and pieces from Avian Wonders Inc. and construct your own!  From decorative crests to specialty wing designs and beaks for all occasions, Avian Wonders Inc. has it all, everything carefully handmade by their skilled artisans.  Once the box of your bird parts has arrived in the mail, you can use this manual to figure out how to put your bird together and begin the process of teaching it how to fly and eat and sing.

I can’t say I’ve ever seen a more clever and imaginative way to teach children (and the adults reading the book to them) about wildlife conservation…Samworth has written and illustrated a total masterpiece.   My favourite book of 2014, hands down.
