9780374335588: Igor, the Bird Who Couldn't Sing

Everybody has a song Igor has been looking forward to spring, when he will sing for the first time in his life. But when the Dawn Chorus begins, the other birds laugh at the notes coming out of his beak. After unsuccessful voice lessons, Igor decides never to sing again and sets off to find a place where there is no music. He roams the globe, which is surprisingly abundant in song, until, at last, he finds a lonely, empty plain where it is quiet. Heartbroken, Igor roosts on a rock until a splendid sunset moves him so much that he breaks his vow of symphonic silence.
Distinctive and artistic illustrations filled with energetic details make this a wonderful story about a bird who ultimately realizes he is not as alone or atonal as he had thought.

From the Inside Flap:

It's all about the joy of making music, and finding an appreciative audience.
Igor has a loud and distinctive voice, and he cannot sing in tune. He is drummed out of the Dawn Chorus for not being musical enough, so he takes singing lessons. But his teacher says that not only is he always out of tune, he has no rhythm either. Poor Igor. He goes off into the desert, where at least he can sing to himself without being asked to stop. He builds a nest on a big rock, and starts to sing. But the rock is in fact a gigantic bird - a Dodo - who likes his music so much it wakes up in order to join in.
