The illustration is gorgeous and well-drawn. This captures the attention of the young reader. It's an interesting story of baby Terror Bird. He just want to live up to his identity, but it's not his time yet. Being picked up by his sibling makes him upset. So, he started scaring the animals. But when he scared his last victim, he realized that scaring them is no fun. This book gives a lot of lessons. For one, making friends are much more fun than trying to look scary. Then, enjoy the time as kids. Being the youngest doesn't mean you can't do anything. It gives you a chance to have fun. I received a copy of this in exchange of an honest review.
