A graphic novel for cartoon lovers
Bird and Squirrel: On the Run by James Burks
Scholastic, August 2012
For the kid who loves cartoons, slapstick humor, and annoyingly funny characters (pretty much anyone in elementary school) this is the book for you. Sensible, overly-cautious Squirrel is preparing for winter, while the annoyingly cheerful bird is delaying his migration south in favor of fun. When a run in with a cat causes Squirrel to loose his entire acorn supply, he has no choice but to journey south with Bird. What follows are the hilarious adventures of the unlikely duo. Bright colors and crazy characters make this book a laugh-out-loud adventure.
