Night of the Living Worms: A Speed Bump & Slingshot Misadventure

(3) 1-3 Bird Speed Bump longs to be smarter and faster like his brother, Early Bird (he always gets the worm), until he and pal Slingshot manage to foil an evil plot against Early Bird. This graphic novel/chapter book hybrid explores themes of loyalty, fear, and self-confidence. With plenty of avian gags, the overall vibe is silly; the slapstick illustrations reward careful observation.
