Flapps is a nocturnal animal who gets bored when there's no one to play with. Everyone else sleeps at night – just not Flapps!
Sometimes Mark plays with her, but tonight Mark has to go to bed earlier than usual. Mark was invited to a birthday party at the birds' place. Flapps wasn't. So, she steals the invitation when Mark is sleeping and goes herself. But the birds aren't particularly interested in having a visit from Flapps. They want Mark, and there's a reason for that …
Tender hearted and funny! The Bird Party has the empathic view, the playful illustrations and the quiet sense of humour. The topic is important. How far are we willing to go to fit in with a certain society?DAGBLADET
The Bird Party is a lovely picture book in a big format. The spreads are full of details, and we find a wonderful and fantastic array of colourful birds. The moral is good and easy to relate to: Is a good friend worth more than a fun party?BARNEBOKKRITIKK
It is the illustrations that elevate the project, with energy and drama. Great fields of deep and dark night colours make a strong contrast to the clear pastels at dawn. Yellow, pink and turquoise bring cheer to the uniformed and somewhat slick flock of birds. They are also shown as black silhouettes, quite threatening. But also appear just as superficial and vane as the text suggests. Flapps stays a nocturnal animal, almost overly simple with his figure quickly sketched, white teeth and circled eyes.BOK365
