Deborah Ruddell - children's poet

Today at the Bluebird Cafe is a kids' book of bird poems by Deborah Ruddell. It has recently been published by Simon and Schuster.

Here's a teaser:

A Vulture’s Guide to Good Manners
I never never never
put my elbows on the table
and my face will never show it
if my tummy feels unstable. ...

Read (and listen) to the rest of "A Vulture's Guide to Good Manners" and more poems by Deborah here.

Check out a few more poems and the marvelous illustrations (Joan Rankin) in the book.

And here's the quite incredible story of how Deborah got 'discovered.'
