Shy is happiest between the pages of a book, both figuratively and literally, but when a bird flies by, he has to decide if he's brave enough to leave his safe space to follow. Such a sweet story with delicate pictures to follow the type of character that isn't always represented in kids' books - someone who's shy and hesitant.

Soft and sweet, this would make an excellent bedtime story.
