2023 Storytelling World Award honoree

Long ago when the world was very young, the birds did not get along. 
They were always fighting about who was better.

Beaks pecking! Feathers flying! 
Squawks and screeches everywhere!

Little Quail feels lost in all the noise, but with each bird trying to outdo the others, Quail bravely takes an unexpected approach. In this delightful take on a Burmese folktale from award-winning storyteller Noa Baum and illustrated by renowned ecologist and artist Zev Labinger, watch the power of kindness change the world.
