In this beautifully illustrated story, Bob Graham shows how all the creatures and the people of the world can be connected to each other in the most surprising ways. A wild, young sparrow rises from the dust outside an Indian food stall surrounded by swaying palms. The sparrow flies off just where he pleases, following the food...He journeys south through the lush rice paddies and across the rough sea and all the way into a bright new day where, just for a moment, the wild sparrow's world collides with little Edie's. So it is that little Edie discovers the taste of vanilla ice cream in the most curious way!show more
