Nerdy Birdy by Aaron Reynolds


Nerdy Birdy by Aaron Reynolds

Nerdy Birdy likes reading, video games, and reading about video games, which immediately disqualifies him for membership in the cool crowd. One thing is clear: being a nerdy birdy is a lonely lifestyle. When he's at his lowest point, Nerdy Birdy meets a flock just like him. He has friends and discovers that there are far more nerdy birdies than cool birdies in the sky. Everything is looking up until a new bird moves into the neighbourhood. She looks lonely. What's a nerdy birdy to do?



-and-watercolor cartoon illustrations create a perfect hybrid of bird and, well, nerd. Reynolds

-age readers who face similar friendship conundrums-and who might draw confidence from Nerdy Birdy. Very funny and full of hope-and feathers. Kirkus, starred review
