Bird & Squirrel on the Run by James Burks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Bird & Squirrel (1)
Adorable tale of friendship. Bird is happy-go-lucky and Squirrel worries about everything. They make a fantastic team as they become friends in this heart-warming and hilarious adventure. James Burke has a wonderful cartoon style of squaring the characters' heads that just seems to make them more adorable. One even has a little feeling for the evil Cat by the end. I loved the contrast of the two friends with Bird seeing the bright side of everything (It's better to die together than alone) and Squirrel afraid, worried or nervous about everything new (Grasshoppers give him the heebie-jeebies). The book ends with the two flying off on a new adventure and I look forward to their antics in the next book.
