Synopsis

Synopsis

When a strange egg appears in their nest, Mr. and Mrs. Bird kindly take it upon themselves to raise the "baby bird" inside. But when the egg hatches, the Birds are in for a big surprise--"Junior" is the oddest-looking baby bird they've ever seen--with big, long jaws full of teeth and an appetite to match. In fact, he looks more like a baby alligator than a baby bird! Nevertheless, the devoted Birds run themselves ragged feeding Junior until he gets so big, he must leave the nest or it will collapse underneath him. But how can Junior fly without wings? To the delight of the Birds--and readers!--the dilemma is solved when Junior takes off from a branch overlooking a pond.

About P.D. Eastman

P.D. Eastman - Flap Your Wings

P. D. EASTMAN wrote and/or illustrated many beloved children’s books, including Are You My Mother?, Go, Dog. Go!, and The Best Nest. After training at the National Academy of Design, P.D. worked at Walt Disney Productions and Warner Bros. Cartoons. He enlisted in the army in 1943 and served in the Signal Corps film unit, which was headed by Theodor Geisel (who would become known to the world as Dr. Seuss). Geisel later approached him to write for his new Beginner Books series at Random House, resulting in the publication of P.D.’ s first book, Sam and the Firefly.
