The Rock and the Bird
Written by Chew Chia Shao Wei
Illustrated by Anngee Neo
There once was a rock which stood old and alone amidst a stretch of sand. For a long time it knew nothing except the lapping waves of the sea. Then one day a noisy bird came to rest on the rock—and began to annoy the rock with its endless chatter. Despite their hostile beginnings, the two began a friendship that evolved and changed over many years.
Woods in the Books recommendation:
With its deceptively simple illustrations and minimal colour palette, this books is a poetic and poignant look at friendship, time, and points of connection.
