Even a day that starts out on a sour note can become a good day after all, as four forest animals learn. A little girl who lives nearby finds the bird's lost feather and declares for all to hear that it really is a good day! Uncluttered illustrations use strong line and gentle colors to convey the wondrous turnaround. Simple forms, gentle hues, and comfortable language are sure to create an enduring classic.

Richly colored paintings accompany the text to enhance and build the concepts presented in the narrative.
