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.---from the publisher

"On the highest mountains, in the deepest forests, in the whole universe, no bird is greater than Arlo." At least so thinks Arlo, a crow who thinks very highly of himself. Arlo has just met Pips, a small yellow bird who isn't exactly convinced that Arlo is the king of birds. After all, Pip can think of a lot prettier birds and birds who are better singers, and ......
Arlo is not to be denied. He launches into his best song and then starts honking like a car.
Told in three chapters this story of two birds, one with a larger brain than the other, getting to know each other and finding themselves off on some great bird adventures.
The humor flits through the story and occasionally offers up a nugget of great info about crows. Turns out they just might have something to brag about. Great fun!
