Arlo and Pips: King of the Birds
Perfect for fans of Narwhal and Jelly, Arlo & Pips: King of the Birds is the first in a new early graphic chapter book series about the friendship between Arlo, an arrogant crow, and a sarcastic little bird named Pips.
Like most crows, Arlo has a big brain. But Arlo has something else: a little pal who's not afraid to tell him when he's being insufferable
In the first of three episodes, a battle of the brains and bird-to-bird banter soon turns into an unexpected friendship. Arlo and Pips' adventures include a visit the big city and the beach on their hunt for shiny things and French fries. Cool crow facts are included throughout the book.
Everyone's crowing about Arlo & Pips, with Kirkus praising it as a perfect match for newly independent readers

Wild Things Review
by bookseller Anna Sheen
This early reader graphic novel (6yrs+) is both fact filled and funny! It features Pips (a small, yellow bird) and Arlo (a Crow). Arlo continuously boasts about how great he is and, much to Pips' surprise, Arlo always has the facts to back up his claims. From antagonising avians to best buds, these birds make reading, and learning, fun. I am so excited for more books in this series (book 2 is due August 2021!). Perfect for fans of 'Sherlock Bones' and 'Narwhal And Jelly'.
