Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Nerdy Birdy likes reading, video games, and reading about video games, which immediately disqualifies him for membership in the cool crowd. One thing is clear: being a nerdy birdy is a lonely lifestyle. When he's at his lowest point, Nerdy Birdy meets a flock just like him. He has friends and discovers that there are far more nerdy birdies than cool birdies in the sky.
Review Quote*Ben Rides On: "Full of warmth, humor and a welcome lesson about bullies, Davies's debut cries out for a follow-up." - The New York Times "Illustration comes naturally to Davies-his editorial cartoons won him a Pulitzer Prize in 2004-and this satisfying tale of a boy, his beloved bicycle, and the bully who steals it is a fine debut."- Publishers Weekly "Great amusement for the bold and timid alike." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
