There was once a bird in the forest that was completely black, except for his white eyes, who was laughed at by all the other animals because he did not have a name.
So he must go to seek his fortune. A modern fable that answers the question "How did the toucan get its name?" - and also incidentally his amazing colours. This beautiful hardback edition of David McKee's first ever picture book - published in its original size - is reissued to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Andersen Press.
