Conversations between three birds are delivered with brevity, precision, and humor in speech bubbles. In the first chapter the avian threesome debates who is the tallest, with the shortest bird’s tail plumage illustrating the satisfying punch line of “I may not be tall … but I am not small!” Chapters two and three explore the concepts of who can go high, and up vs. down. A comical art style and lift-the-flap page reveals add to the fresh and interactive feel of this very easy beginning reader. (Ages 5–7)
