Award winning woodcut artist, John Schirmer, creates a children's book with non-stop smiles for young and old alike. Richly illustrated with 14 woodcuts, the 16-page poem is designed to make you laugh.

HAVE YOU SEEN MY BIRD?
I'VE BEEN LOOKING EVERYWHERE

I'VE BEEN LOOKING IN THE HALLWAY
I'VE BEEN LOOKING ON THE STAIR

I LOOKED INSIDE THE CUPBOARD
AND FOUND THAT IT WAS BARE

I LOOKED INSIDE MY SHOE
BUT DIDN'T FIND HIM THERE

I ASKED MY LITTLE SISTER
BUT SHE'S TOO YOUNG TO TALK

I ASKED MY PUPPY, BOWSER
AND TOOK HIM FOR A WALK

I LOOKED INSIDE THE SCHOOL, THE POOL
I LOOKED INSIDE THE CAR

I SEARCHED UNDER THE BED
BUT DIDN'T GET TOO FAR

HAVE YOU SEEN MY BIRD?
ARE YOU SURE HE'S NOT WITH YOU

I LOOKED AROUND THE ART FAIR
I LOOKED AROUND THE ZOO

THE DAY IS ALMOST OVER
IT'S TIME TO GO TO BED

I THINK I'LL BRUSH MY TEETH
OH!.....HE'S ON MY HEAD
