Ray crafts an elegant framework for bird-themed stories and poems. Among the 12 selections are adaptations of a creation myth from Kenya, the story of Noah’s Ark, and Oscar Wilde’s ironically sorrowful “The Happy Prince.” A pair of poems—Emily Dickinson’s “Hope Is the Thing With Feathers” and Edward Lear’s “The Owl and the Pussycat”—appear, along with the traditional nursery rhyme “Magpie Song.”
