From the New York Times–bestselling author: “Great for read-alouds . . . [A] unique, clever book that young readers will love.” —School Library Journal
It’s time to fly home for dinner! In this witty picture book from Mac Barnett, a Caldecott Honor and E.B. White Read Aloud Award winner, a mother bird gives the bird next to her a message for little Peter. But passing messages on a telephone line isn’t as simple as it sounds. Each subsequent bird understands Mama’s message according to its own very particular hobbies, personality, and situation. Will Peter ever get home for dinner?
This uproarious interpretation of a favorite children’s game will get everyone giggling and is sure to lead to countless rereads.
