Vulture View

by April Pulley Sayre
Illustrated by Steve Jenkins

Published by Henry Holt, 2007
32 pages
ISBN: 0805075577

Ages 4-8

Vultures smell the air. They sniff, search, seek for foods that . . . REEK!” April Pulley Sayre takes an uncompromising and surprisingly enticing look at the habits of turkey vultures in a short, poetic text that touches on flight, food, and family. Sayre uses rhyme, changing rhythm, and alliteration in a skillful narrative that is dramatically illustrated by Steve Jenkins with his trademark, arresting collage images. An author’s note provides additional information to supplement the brief picture book narrative about “nature’s cleanup crew.”  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
