Bird and Squirrel: Friends?

BIRD AND SQUIRREL ON THE RUN! by James Burks (Scholastic Graphix, August 2012) is raucous and riotous (well at least bird is; squirrel is a bit more quiet and industrious). In spare text, Burks pairs the two polar opposites as they try to outrun a rather vicious cat. can Bird and Squirrel survive? Will Squirrel be able to tolerate Bird and his insistence that the duo needs a theme song? While the cover might suggest a young audience, the humor will appeal to middle grades and middle school readers. More adventures, please. <186>


  1. This book sounds hilarious! I love the idea of the squirrel and bird having their own theme song! I might have to check this book out.

  2. Imagine a bookwalk with this book before reading it, I bet their imaginations would go wild with that cover picture!
