Ethan Long, author of Stop Kissing Me! and One Drowsy Dragon, now brings his wacky sense of humor to an easy reader. Long explains the concepts of up, tall and long, in three brief stories featuring an assortment of silly looking birds. There are flaps to lift up, bright colors, and simple large text bubbles that make it a nice transition from picture books to easy reader. Grown-ups will enjoy the droll humor, too. Look for it in our Easy Reader collection for your beginning reader. Reviewed by Victoria.
