it was amazing

Calvin's cousins called him "nerdie birdie," "geeky beeky," and "bookworm." And when you're a bird, being called a "worm" is a very bad thing. Calvin spends all his time in the library and forgets his flying lessons. While his brothers and sisters take flight, Calvin takes flights of fancy! When his family heads south for the winter they are obliged to tie Calvin up in a bunch of ribbons and tug him along. It's not until Calvin's smarts save the starlings from a horrible weather system that the birdies discover the beauty of bookishness. Reviewed by Elizabeth Pusack
