A friendship story between a girl and the rarest of birds: a doughnut-loving dodo!

Martha is absolutely cuckoo for birds! She’s identified every single bird in the woods behind her house. But one day she sees a bird unlike any other... Can that really be a dodo? It turns out that dodos make very good friends (and are crazy about doughnuts!). But when Martha’s secret gets out and the whole town wants to see her new friend, will Martha have to say good-bye to Mr. Dodo?

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Hector and Hummingbird:

*“ Frith has created a visually stunning work, and young readers who look closely will find a forest

teeming with wildlife hidden in plain sight.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

*“ Most impressive of all is his artwork: rendered in a gorgeously florid palette of brown, pink,

turquoise, and olive, it evokes both midcentury illustration and vintage barkcloth.”

Publishers Weekly, starred review
