Arlo & Pips

A middle-grade book by Elise Gravel.

Elise Gravel

Arlo & Pips 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.

Who is the greatest bird in the world? Arlo the crow of course! At least,he sure thinks so, such as Elise herself. Follow the journey of Arlo and Pips as they go from city to beach, while Arlo tries to prove that he is the greatest bird in the world. Could it be true? (From HarperAlley)
