About The Book

From the beloved New York Times bestselling, Sibert Honor–winning author of the National Book Award finalist The Soul of an Octopus author comes a “beautifulcaptivating” (Booklist, starred review) nonfiction picture book about the most exquisite and extraordinary of winged creatures—hummingbirds.

The lightest birds in the sky, hummingbirds are capable of incredible feats, such as flying backwards, diving at speeds of sixty-one miles per hour, and beating their wings more than sixty times a second. The miraculous creatures are also incredibly vulnerable when they first emerge from their eggs. This book tells the story of a hummingbird’s early life and how they make their way into the world.
