Susie Nelson, an avid drawer and writer, has completed her new book “The Immortal and the Ugly Bird”: a colorfully illustrated folk tale that teaches children how to look at their own faults and to not judge others.

According to Nelson, “I was born in Brigham City, Utah. My grandparents had a farm, and I spent most of my childhood on the farm. My grandfather had work horses, and I drew them a lot. In the third grade, I received my first blue ribbon at the fair. My picture was of a horse, a cowboy, and a calf at a rodeo. I took many art classes in school. In 1967, we moved to Sylmar, California, and in high school I was an art major. I continued to draw landscapes. I love to draw mountains, rock formations, lakes, trees of a forest, and so on. Now I love drawing portraits, my favorites are of Native American Chiefs. After deciding to write a children's story, I wanted even more to draw the pictures and make it personal. Therefore, “The Immortal and the Ugly Bird” came into reality, as well as all of the artwork.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Susie Nelson’s folk tale uses a simplistic story to teach children a valuable lesson of improving themselves and not focusing on the faults of others; and the artistic depictions of the Immortal and the animals brings the story to life.

“The Immortal and the Ugly Bird” is an old folktale about the old Immortals and what they created on Earth. One Immortal was listening to the other Immortals and he decided he could make his creations more beautiful. So, he came down to speak with his creations and ask them if they would like to be more beautiful. The animals’ answers provide a valuable lesson for readers young and old.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “The Immortal and the Ugly Bird” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
