Description-

  • A hilarious and oh-so-honest look at the art of sharing, from two rising picture-book stars.
    Bird is just about to put the finishing touches on his new home when he suddenly finds that his nest is already full—of someone else. So he reluctantly builds another nest. But Fox finds this new nest quite comfy, and Brush Hog loves the view from Bird's next attempt. Soon the Acacia tree is bursting with happily nested animals of all shapes and stripes—everyone except bird!
    But when Bird finally finds a way to evict his unwelcome guests, the animals realize their mistake and build a nest that's big enough for all of them. Well, almost...

    A tiny yellow bird has just finished building a nest, but other animals in the savanna think it looks like a good place to rest, too.The design has been planned. The twigs gathered. One last leaf and the nest will be complete. But as the yellow bird flies happily toward the tree, a larger bird is already there. "You can build another," says the bully of a bird. "I guess I could..." says the tiny, crestfallen bird. So plans are made again. Twigs are gathered. One last leaf--and suddenly there's a fennec in the nest! Each attempt to build a cozy home brings a more absurd animal to the tree. A warthog, a gorilla, an elephant, and more balance precariously as they settle in, each with their own sound reason as to why the dwelling suits them. Frustrated and exhausted, the yellow bird finally finds some powerful help to knock everyone out of the tree. But maybe there is a way to share after all. Tsurumi's expressive animals (sometimes uppity, sometimes sheepish--all forming a dejected, collective slump when they realize how they've treated their friend) definitely rule the roost. Laid out in mostly double-page spreads and with wry text set entirely in speech balloons, the visual storytelling easily engages readers, perhaps most impressively as the little bird scowls with determination, perched on a wildebeest's horns as it charges directly at readers.Giggle-inducing buffoonery; but thankfully, bigger rivals don't get the last laugh. (Picture book. 3-7)

    PreS-Gr 1-A small yellow bird is proud of the beautiful nest she has designed and built all by herself in an acacia tree on the African plain. When she gathers one last element to complete her resting place, she is surprised to find that a large bird has taken up residence. The big bird won't budge, so the small one goes off to design and build another nest only to discover this one usurped by a fox. Every time the little bird builds a nest, another animal claims it. Soon a gorilla, a giraffe, an elephant, a zebra, and others decide they want to live in a nest high in the treetop. As day turns to night, the exhausted bird has had enough. The creatures come to a compromise in a conclusion that will satisfy a young audience. The first page serves as foreshadowing as all the former ground dwellers are carefully watching the original nest being built. Large, clear illustrations add even more humor to this poor bird's preposterous predicament. VERDICT An enormously amusing read-aloud choice.-Maryann H. Owen, Oak Creek Public Library WI
