A new edition of the beautifully illustrated, bestselling book, revised for younger readers.
This inspiring children's book—a revised edition of the award-winning Flight of the Hummingbird—is based on a South American indigenous story about a courageous hummingbird who defies fear and expectations in her attempt to save the forest from fire. The illustrated story is supplemented by a natural and cultural history of hummingbirds, as well as an inspiring message from Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai.
The evocative artwork by internationally renowned Haida artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas complements the optimistic tale that encourages everyone to take responsibility for their home and the planet.

The Little Hummingbird is the embodiment of this relatively new style of Haida comics, which combines elements of traditional North Pacific arts and narrative, in this case that of the Haida, and the design of Japanese manga. —Globe & Mail
