Abstract:This article provides a close examination of Margaret Wise Brown and Remy Charlip's The Dead Bird, a picture book intended for young children which addresses the subject of death in a straightforward manner. Detailed visual and textual analyses explore the ways in which the author and illustrator's work complement one another to create a response in the reader, a response that has kept the book in print since it was published in 1958.
