This work is intended for ages 4-8. As an adult, John Audubon was the best known wildlife artist of the 19th century, and his book, "Birds of America", is the standard against which all subsequent bird art has been measured. In this story about the artist's childhood in the West Indies and France, John's love of drawing sends him into the fields and woods near his country house in pursuit of winged models. Games and adventures also beckon: John confronts a ghost in the old water mill tower; presents his friend Cecile with a surprise birthday gift (that goes horribly wrong!); and sails off to seek his fortune in America. Special features include a summary of John's adult accomplishments, fun facts detailing little-known information about him, and a time-line of his life.
