A simple, universal story of a day in the life of Little Bird as she sings the world alive, flies with Cloud, travels with Wind, nestles with Moon and dreams of flying among the stars. Sally's gentle words and Johnny's intricate artwork combine to make this a beautiful, distinctive publication with global appeal. Johnny infuses his illustrations with his fine-art aesthetic, his traditional motifs and a quirky sense of humour.
"Little Bird’s Day by Sally Morgan and Johnny Warrkatja Malibirr is a simple but beautifully told story that celebrates the creatures of the outback and honours the elements in just the perfect amount of words and a handful of colours."
— Frances Atkinson, The Saturday Age
"Little Bird’s Day perfectly fuses text and image to create a masterpiece which is a delight to read."
— CBCA Reading Time
