Bird & Squirrel on the Run: 10/13/13
Bird & Squirrel on the Run by James Burks is about an unlikely friendship between a hyperactive bird and a very nervous squirrel. The bird wants to migrate south for the winter and the squirrel wants to get his winter stores ready.
Except Squirrel ends up on a mad dash adventure with Bird. Toss in one angry and hungry cat who appears to be as big as great outdoors, these two unlikely friends are in for the adventure of their lives.
Bird & Squirrel is one of the most fun tween graphic novels I've read recently. Burks's experience as an animator comes through loud and clear in these eye catching character designs and his intense pallet of colors. Think of it as Regular Show for the somewhat younger set.
