Flight of the Dodo by Peter Brown

From New York Times bestselling author Peter Brown, Flight of the Dodo is a humorous and universal story about the desire to fly, persistence, the love of adventure, and most important of all....poop!

Not all birds can fly—a fact Penguin knows all too well. When Penguin gets pooped on by a goose flying overhead, he becomes more determined than ever to fly himself! He gathers up his three flightless friends (they call themselves the Waddlers), and sets about building a flying machine. Readers will know Peter Brown's quirky characters from bestselling books like Children Make Terrible Pets and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild. Kids and adults alike will love the Waddlers' hilarious adventures!

*A tale of flightless birds/birds that do not fly. *How a little poop helped the birds, is part of the tale. *A funny work of fiction to delight young readers.

This is such a great book, it get's cuter everytime I read it! The author/illustrator is so wonderfully clever in telling the story of the Waddlers, determined to take flight and show the Flappers a thing or two. Adorable, but sadly somewhat clueless, those Waddlers create a charming story for all ages to enjoy. It got me smiling and laughing till the very end. (I even hugged the book when I was done) As a penguin lover, this is definately a must have in my collection.
