From award-winning picture book makers Alexis Deacon and Viviane Schwarz comes an enlightening new story about discovering the world – and your place in it.

For budding philosophers of all ages, this is the uplifting story of Ergo the chick. Ergo wakes up and sets about exploring her world. She discovers her toes. She discovers her wings and her beak. She has discovered EVERYTHING! But then she considers the wall. And something outside the wall goes BUMP. What could it be? The only way to find out is to peck peck peck through to the other side…

This is an inspiring story told with heaps of humour. Like its predecessor, I Am Henry Finch, Ergo is a book for everyone – from the very young to the very old. It is for dreamers, philosophers, artists, the foolish and the enlightened. A profound picture book experience told with simplicity and style.

Publisher Review

Praise for I Am Henry Finch: Original, thought provoking and very funny. * The Bookseller * This is an uplifting and hilarious story about a little bird called Henry Finch, and his endearing struggles to become something great. He makes a lot of mistakes on the way, but his courage is inspiring, getting kids to think about what it means to make a difference. * Anorak * Ideal for inquisitive kids * The Times * A very sweet story, happy, gentle and adventurous, this is one to lead us all to consider the entire world...and our place in it. Tender, funny, full of thought, it acts as a guide into life and shows the value of connection. ERGO is wonderful! -- Mary Esther Judy * Fallen Star Stories * I don't do this lightly - but THIS is genius. I find favourites hard - but if I did have one, my favourite picture book of the year would probably be Ergo by Alexis Deacon and Vivian Schwarz. A triumph in design. Profound simplicity. * Nikki Gamble *
