'Little Tails in the Savannah' by Frédéric Brrémaud and Federico Bertolucci follows Chipper and Squizzo on another adventure. The art of the Savannah is beautiful since this graphic novel is by the same people behind the stunning Love series featuring tigers, a fox, and dinosaurs.

Chipper and Squizzo set out on another adventure, but Squizzo's plane starts acting up, so they are on foot in the Savannah. They encounter a series of animals up close. Some are a bit too close for Chipper's taste. The

This is the third book in the Little Tails series. There is a puppy named Chipper and a squirrel named Squizzo that go on adventures around the world. This book, they are heading to the Savannah in Africa. They hop into a cardboard airplane and unfortunately crash land. They need to walk through the Savannah while looking for Squizzo's uncle. The main characters appear at the top of each page in a black and white comic strip of a few panels discussing where they are, what they see, and something ...more

This is a cute picture book, beautifully illustrated, that tells about the animals of the savannah, all the while telling also the adventures of a squirrel and puppy who have come to visit a flying squirrel. Along the way they encounter all the animals found there, and learn little facts about them.

This is a great way to introduce these animals to young children, while wrapped around a cute story. The animals are drawn more realistically then the cartoony dog and squirrel. Apparently they have v

Little Tails in the Savannah by Frederic Brremaud Little Tails in the Savannah by Frederic Brremaud is a fun-to-read book about Chipper and Squizzo, a puppy and squirrel who have a cardboard airplane to travel and explore wonderful places.
They encounter real animals in the African Savannah. They came across a monkey, a poisonous black mamba, a warthog, a gnu, a lion and some vultures. They also saw a cheetah chasing gazelles. They took a bone from a hyena which was not a good idea. Then they sa

I do enjoy the collaborations between Brremaud and Bertolucci. Their stories are typically engaging and full of detailed, eye-catching, colorful art. This is no exception. Part of their children's series, it takes readers on a fantastic journey through the African savannah while also showcasing imaginative play.

Squizzo the squirrel and Chipper the pup love to travel and go on adventures. Using their cardboard airplane, they travel to the African savannah to visit Squizzo's uncle Buzz,

Thank you to Magnetic Press, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in the Little Tails series, but the first one that I have gotten the chance to read. I really wanted to love this book because the artwork is stunning. The color palette and saturation were perfect choices to convey the feeling of an African savannah.

I didn't find Chipper or Squizzo particularly cute or funny, they were just ok. Each page focused

As with the first, a squirrel takes a relatively dimwit dog for a trip to find out about animals. As the title tells you, this one takes place in Africa. Each page contains a three-panel comic strip with a full color painting of the animal discussed taking up most of the page.
What kind of plane gets destroyed crashing into a giraffe? A cardboard one, of course. And yes, that ball is a pile of poo. Great start. . .

I love the kind of EB books that introduce facts in the graphic format. Vision is our primary sense in learning and even more so as children.

The only quibble that I have is the fact that the authors should not inject their opinions about any single animal. Hyenas are wonderful animals not "nasty beasts". All non-human beings are wonderful animals. That includes snakes, sharks, poisonous fishes, scorpions, spiders, etc. and other "fugly" beings. This kind of judgement on any animal species that

Description: Chipper and Squizzo go on another adventure in their paper airplane. This time they are off to the Savannah where they explore and introduce the reader to all the wonderful animals they encounter.

In Short: The Little Tails books are perfect for children that are very interested in animals because they have the most gorgeous art of animals along with fun, educational facts about various exotic creatures.

Pros: The art is fabulous. Pairs cartoons (Chipper and Squizzo) with more realis

Fossi stata un cucciolotto, avrei adorato di più questa serie con i suoi fumettini deliziosi e le favolose illustrazioni di Bertolucci. A trent'anni, ovviamente, le cose sono un po' diverse. Ma me li sono comprati tutti nella speranza di passarli a qualcuno con la mia stessa passione per la lettura in futuro.

ADORABLE. I want to read them all now. Accessible information for kids on an area of the world that they may not be familiar with in a cute way!

I really enjoyed the combination of the sketched illustrations of Chipper and Squizzo with the realistic depiction of animals and landscapes in the Savannah. Initially, I did feel myself getting pulled from the story with the main characters keeping their comic style, however, upon as the story continued and then with a reread I felt more comfortable with the format and found myself enjoying the story immensely more.

The adventure is quite simple - Chipper and Squizzy wandering through the Savann

Excellent interspersing of traditional cartoons with modern day graphics. The story was also incredibly intriguing.

Three and a half stars for a cute little book for cute little people. A squirrel and a puppy get in a cardboard plane to visit a flying squirrel relative of the former in Africa, but to get to him they have to pass by lots of game and other wildlife. The journey is shown through very decent one-colour cartooning, and we have even more decent (and accurate) full-colour portraits of the creatures and the landscape, which really bring the place to life. It's just, if a bit more forethought could ha ...more

Another wildly fun book staring Chipper and Squizzo. These two friends are off on another adventure and this time they are headed for the African Savannah. With lots of interesting facts and illustrations, this is another tale in the series that shouldn't be missed.

"Any landing you can walk away from is a good one."

One afternoon, two friends take a small cardboard airplane to see the Savannah and come across various animals, and the twenty or so pages involve one of them telling the other about the snake, lions, hyenas, the cheetah and all. Little Tails in the Savannah is a beautiful little children’s book, teaching about animals found in the Savannah in 33 pages. It is a very nicely illustrated book, with dreamy illustrations of the various animals. The l

What a cute book for kids. Chipper and Squizzo take us on a little trip to the savannah to get to know some of the animals that live there and some of their characteristics.

The art isn't all that fabulous, the two main characters are always in black in white while the rest is in colour and is more worked, for lack of a better word.

This is a very cute book for the
