Perfect for fans of Narwhal and Jelly, Arlo & Pips: King of the Birds is the first in a new early graphic chapter book series about the friendship between Arlo, an arrogant crow, and a sarcastic little bird named Pips.
Like most crows, Arlo has a big brain. But Arlo has something else: a little pal who's not afraid to tell him when he's being insufferable!
In the first of three episodes, a battle of the brains and bird-to-bird banter soon turns into an unexpected friendship. Arlo and Pips' adventures include a visit the big city and the beach on their hunt for shiny things and French fries. Cool crow facts are included throughout the book.
Arlo & Pips is the HarperCollins Canada Kids' Top Pick for this fall!
|Review Quote*||"Fun and informative! This book will FLY off the shelves!"|
|Review Quote*||"Straightforward sentences, limited color scheme, and thick black outlines make this a perfect match for newly independent readers. Through Pips' inquisitiveness and Arlo's desire to prove himself, readers also learn much about the intelligence, diet, and behavior of crows. A charming treasure."|
|Review Quote*||"Gravel brings the smart attitude of her Disgusting Critters series to a more fictional narrative here, and it's just as informative and accessible in its provision of kid-pleasing facts...Aspiring birders with a flair for the dramatic may be particularly drawn to Arlo's braggadocio."|
|Review Quote*||"This simple story of would-be friendship [has] Gravel's distinctive panels and snappy dialogue...crow facts appear throughout like cereal-box prizes"|
