In the first of three episodes, a battle of the brains and bird-to-bird banter soon turns into an unexpected friendship.

This book is a fun way to introduce a young reader to the colorful world of graphic novels! A crow named Arlo loves to brag about all the things he knows and things he can do. After he moves to the city he meets Pips who shows Arlo that there is still a lot he can learn from others. The graphics are simple and colorful, and the characters have lots of personality! Your child will learn some cool facts as well!

Arlo, a crow who is well aware of his own awesomeness, sets out to prove to his friend Pips why he's the greatest bird in the world. This graphic novel is amazing -- Actual Crow Facts are marked in the text with a red star ("Some crows have been seen playing dead to fool other crows and keep food for themselves.") and the illustrations are bright and cheerful. Highly recommend to young readers, science-minded readers, and anyone who appreciates a good laugh.
