Artist James Sturm (Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow, The Golem’s Mighty Swing) signs his new children’s book BIRDSONG at the Takoma Park Library on Monday, April 11, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. Books sold by Politics & Prose.

Inspired by the Japanese art of kamishibai, or “paper theater,” this wordless story is meant to inspire a performance. A boy and girl are cruelly teasing animals in a forest when a frightened bird takes flight. The children give chase up a mountainside and find themselves confronted by a mystical man who has feathers emerging from his clothing. With a flash like lightning, the children are transformed—into monkeys. Eventually captured by humans, they receive some of the cruel treatment they had earlier perpetrated themselves. In keeping with kamishibai tradition, this tale contains a lesson for young readers to discover as they turn the pages.
