Review: Bird & Squirrel on Ice
Bird & Squirrel on Ice by James Burks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Bird and Squirrel are back and ready for adventure!
After Bird and Squirrel crash land in the South Pole during a raging blizzard, a penguin named Sakari thinks Bird has come to rid her village of a hungry Killer Whale. But when Squirrel finds out that Bird will actually be fed to the Killer Whale as a sacrifice, they hatch a crazy plan to escape. With a good timing, a little luck, and help from Sakari, they just might make it out alive. Or they might end up as whale food!
This was my first experience with the quacky duo of Bird and Squirrel. The characters are so funny and apparently prone to misunderstandings, silliness, and down right disasters at times. I am glad to add this to my read books and blog reviews for future readers (children and adult alike) to enjoy thanks to the publisher providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
The book is laid out in comic book style, but simplified for younger readers. By that I mean there are not a dozen word balloons in one screen. It is beautifully colored and exciting to the end. Squirrel shows true friendship and bravery as does Sakari. Bird has the ability to bounce back from anything apparently haha.
A great positive read for children with action, suspense, as well as friendship and loyalty prominently displayed.
