This book is about a a bird that is a nerd that has no friends, a bigger bird that is a bully and a storm that brings them together.

It is in a rhyme.

My five year old likes it. I don't.

It is a very commonly done theme that unless done exceptionally well, feels trite.

Suitable for very young children.

This is a gorgeous children's book that not only has an anti-bullying message, but also is a great reminder that we should embrace the things that make us unique. I will be reading this to my little one for many years to come.
