Little Golden Book: Big Bird's Red Book

Big Bird's Red Book featuring Jim Henson's Muppets is a Little Golden Book and was published in 1977. It was written by Rosanne and Jonathan Cerf and illustrated byMike Smollin.

Big Bird wants to show the viewers something that is red, and he knows he has something red in his grocery bag, though he has trouble finding it. While he is searching for something red, several red things show up in the background.

Big Bird speaks directly to the reader in word balloons, comic book-style.
