South

In South, a little bird awakens to find that all of his friends and family have gone south for the winter, and it takes a surprising friendship with Mooch the cat to help him find his way.

This wordless story is equally humorous and poignant, and shows that the unspoken language of sharing and comfort is all that is needed for these two different animals to communicate. Painting for the first time in a warm, elegant brushwork style inspired by Japanese art, Patrick McDonnell has crafted a beautiful story of being lost and found, crossing boundaries, and saying goodbye.
