Emily Dickinson's beloved poem is beautifully brought to life by bestselling artist Tim Hopgood in this beautiful picturebook that champions poetry and shows that, even in the darkest times, there is always hope.

In Hope is the Thing with Feathers, readers follow the story of a little bird who brings joy to everyone through his song. When a storm hits, the little bird's song is diminished, but he never gives up, and when the storm passes he is there to give joy again as people rebuild.
