Whatever he finds he collects and brings home until his goods and nests multiply. Magpie soon has too much stuff! How is that possible? Read to find out.
A very unique picture book as it is very sparse on words, seeming to have the goal of teaching the concepts of more, less, and enough. This is a great picture book in that the art gives the text a whole other depth of story. The items on the pages are so detailed and repeat page after page so that the book almost feels like a casual eye-spy.
