School Library Journal - 03/01/2014 K-Gr 2—In this sweet story, a little cuckoo bird discovers that he is different from his siblings and goes in search of someone who can speak his language. As Cuckoo goes on his journey, several animals are introduced (hissing snakes, oinking pigs, mooing cows), making this a fun read-aloud. The characters are instantly likable, and the illustrations are bright and cheery and awash with sunny yellows. Packed with tons of heart, this book about finding one's place in the world is ideal for reading while snuggled in bed.—Krishna Grady, Darien Library, CT - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
