Do YOU ever get hangry?

Bird is hiking with his friends when his tummy rumbles. But no one packed him a snack that he likes! With every step, his hunger mounts until he collapses on the ground. How will Bird survive if he doesn't eat the perfect something this instant?!

The hilarious, blue-feathered character who first starred in Jeremy Tankard's high-flying debut, Grumpy Bird, returns in another laugh-out-loud melodrama. For every child who has ever needed a snack right now, and for every parent who has had to cope with a hangry, fussy child, Hungry Bird is sure to satisfy.

“Whimsical and funny . . . keep this energetic picture book in mind for wee storytime members.” —Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Boo Hoo Bird:

“. . . kids and adults will laugh in spite of themselves . . . the theme of friendship coupled with Tankards’s whimsical visuals make [this] an ideal book for storytime.” —Quill & Quire, starred review
