Catherine Rayner, Author: Catherine Rayner. In a faraway place on a high mountain top', a dragon named Sylvia lives in a leafy paradise. The two become companions, but it takes a courageous act of true friendship by Bird (and a near disaster) for Sylvia to see that Bird is the very best friend she could wish for. A story that gently explores themes of expectation, loneliness, friendship and valuing others.
Sylvia and Bird is a 2009 picture book by Catherine Rayner. It is about the friendship between a dragon, called Sylvia, and a little yellow bird. Booktrust described Sylvia and Bird as "a story that gently explores themes of expectation, loneliness, friendship and valuing others". and The Daily Telegraph called it a "strange and simple story".
Sylvia is one good-looking dragon, however, and readers can spend a long time visually unravelling Rayner's swirly black outlines and swooping blue-green watercolors against a stark white backgrounds. Bird is equally pleasing as a blot of bright yellow. In all, though, it may impress the adult eye more than a child's. In this quiet tale about friendship, Sylvia the dragon is lonely. One day she startles a bird by heaving a big dragon sigh, and they become friends. It’s a great friendship, but Sylvia still finds herself wishing for the company of other dragons.
