Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Bird doesn't mind that all the other birds already flew south for the winter. He'll get there, eventually. This same free-as-a-bird attitude lands him in the path of Squirrel, who loses his entire winter store of acorns while rescuing Bird from Cat. With no other choice, Squirrel sets off with Bird on a road trip south for the winter. Meanwhile, they are, ahem, doggedly pursued by the menacing, mute Cat. He is a danger that stalks through the pages, creating real tension and anxiety for skittish Squirrel and young readers alike. Bird and Squirrel's adventures take them through the forest, over canyons, and even underground where they meet a rambling, prophesying elderly mole but their greatest tests are of courage and friendship. Bird's relentless optimism is tempered by Squirrel's ceaseless worrying; and Squirrel learns to live by facing death head-on. The easy-to-follow panels offer a great introduction for readers interested in trying their first graphic novel, and the warm, engaging art has the same vibrant energy of a beloved Saturday morning cartoon.--Jones, Courtney Copyright 2010 Booklist"
