The irresistible Bird takes flight once again in this winning sequel to Jeremy Tankard’s soaring spring 2007 debut, GRUMPY BIRD. Bird and Raccoon are playing ball, when Bird gets bonked on the head. “Boo hoo hoo!” he cries. What will make Bird feel better? A kiss? A cookie? A Band-Aid? Bird’s friends Raccoon, Rabbit, Beaver, Sheep, and Fox are full of sweet and funny ideas.


This is a wonderfully humorous book that parents may be able to relate to as they read it with their child. Bird and Raccoon are playing ball when Bird is accidentally hit on the head. Bird cries inconsolably as one after another, his friends try in vain to soothe the bump on his head. From a kiss to a hug and even cookies – nothing works. In the end, his friends feel so helpless they end up crying! Oh dear! Will the crying ever stop? Look out for the comical ending that will surely bring a smile to your child’s lips.
