Jak Sykorka Prisla o Csek.(How the Titmouse Lost His Tail.)

The story of a little titmouse, (yellow breasted with a black mask and no crest) allows for many wonderful bird illustrations with drawings or full page paintings on every spread, and a little titmouse next to each page number. Charming even though we can't read Czech.
