    From the 2016 Tony Award winner for Best Lead Actress in a Play!

    Tucked away in an old barn, a wonderful secret waits to be discovered.

    Adah and Ilse love visiting their grandmother's farm. There are baby chicks to tend to, dogs to play with, and tadpoles to catch! But best of all, there is a barn full of forgotten treasures to explore.

    One rainy afternoon, Adah and Ilse find a beautiful golden birdcage hidden in the barn. Who did it belong to, they wonder? And what happened to the bird who loved inside?

    Join Adah and Ilse on an adventure as they learn the story of a little bird named Uccellino.

    The debut picture book from acclaimed, Oscar-winning actress Jessica Lange!

    Jessica Lange weaves a beautiful tale in this elegant and heartfelt story about two sisters, Ilse and Adah, who are visiting their grandmother's quaint farm. Ilse and Adah agree that they need an adventure on a rainy summer day, and they quickly decide that sneaking into the old, ramshackle barn is the perfect undertaking.

    When they discover a wealth of treasures, including an antique birdcage, their curiosity gets the best of them, and they ask their grandmother for the story behind these mysterious objects. As their grandmother reminisces about her journeys through Paris and Rome, and about a very special pet canary named Uccellino-Italian for "little bird"-the girls realize that they are experiencing a truly magical summer.
