Canaries are carried around the world in this informative tale with stunning illustrations. In gilded, folk art style, the early reader focuses on a miners’ canary, who revels in his days off from singing in the dark. When a bird dealer takes the canary from his cozy mountain cage, he winds up in the stuffy hull of a ship, feeling homesick. Across the sea, though, he finds a new, happy home. He’s no longer alone; he can sing all day, if he wants to.
