Lyrical…[Mason] uses color to masterful effect to reflect the weather, changing seasons, and mood, the spreads sometimes in washed-out grays, other times tinged yellow by the setting sun or the bright blues and white of a sunny day after a snowstorm.
Banks’ prose is filled with figurative language…In full-bleed spreads, illustrator Suzie Mason brings winter to the page. Her color palette grows dark as the season sets in…. The Winter Bird is an earnest anthropomorphized tale. Its creatures support and encourage one another, forming a kind and tightknit community that transforms the nightingale.
