About the Author

Lindsey Yankey grew up in rural Kansas drawing and playing outside. She was studying illustration at the University of Kansas when a bird flew through her open bedroom window. The bird perched on the bookshelf, looked around the room for a bit, flew in a circle, and back out the open window. That was the beginning of Bluebird.Lindsey is currently living in Lawrence, Kansas with her fiancΓ©, cat, and lemon tree. Bluebird is her first picture book.

Reviews

Whimsical illustrations using various materials of collage, pencil, ink, linoleum block, and paint that play with dimension abound. Each spread could be a stand-alone, but the beauty is in how each one enhances the others in a dreamy compilation brought together by bluebird s story. A deep richness is emphasized in each illustration and a diversity they collectively create. I ve been an admirer of Lindsey Yankey s work since seeing it on display in Downtown Lawrence a few years back, and am so excited to share this book with you. Bluebird is a delightful story with luminous art which will send imaginations soaring.

School Library Journal: PreS-Gr 1 One morning, a young bluebird is surprised to discover that the wind is missing. She has never flown without her friend, so she decides to find it. She goes in search of all of its usual hangouts: among the dandelions in the park, underneath the willow tree, at the rustling newspapers of the local cafe, around a floating balloon, on a flagpole, and beyond. Finally, she finds it at the top of a very high building. It is here that she realizes she has been flying all on her own. With newfound confidence, she takes off with her friend, the wind, to find new adventures. The delicate illustrations are droll and whimsical with rich details of the park and surrounding cityscape make this a delightful, low-key exploration. Laura Hunter, Mount Laurel Library, NJ"
