A New York Public Library Best Book of the Year
Sydney Taylor Book Award Winner

Praise for White Bird:

"At once expressive and chaste, an elusive but ideal combination." --New York Times

"A story that shows the impact of the Second World War and the rise of fascism on what had been a pastoral, fairy-tale childhood, with White Bird pulling no punches in connecting that historical moment to what's happening in the world today." --The Hollywood Reporter

"Extraordinarily powerful.... White Bird does not shrink from depicting the terror and violence of the Nazi occupation for younger readers, and respects the ability of those readers to handle strong material." --Forbes

"A must-read graphic novel that is both heart-rending and beautifully hopeful." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A story of resistance, bravery, and survival.... This compelling story is served well by the graphic novel format." --Booklist

"Sure to be popular among fans of Wonder and educators who want to connect past to present." --School Library Journal

"R.J. Palacio brings to life the nature of heroism and the real risks we face today." --Meg Medina, Newbery award-winning author of Mercy Suarez Changes Gears

"Rare, superb, timely, and timeless." --Mark Siegel, author of the 5 Worlds graphic novel series
