Patrick McDonnell packs a big punch in small stories. His latest, South, tells a wonderful story of friendship and trust using only the sounds of birds chirping and weeping and the road signs you follow to go "South." One tired little bird sleeps through the song of the birds as they gather to fly south, but, when he is knocked awake by a leaf landing on his head he faces a dilemma. Rescue comes from an unexpected source and a friendship is hatched. Marketed as juvenile fiction, this gem deserves a wider audience. If you've been searching for the perfect gift for the perfect friend, try South by Patrick McDonnell. You can find it at Otto's, the booklover's paradise in the heart of downtown Williamsport.
