PreS-Gr 2--In this new book from the author of the "Pig in a Wig" series, three yellow birds land on Captain Cat's ship. The birds are ready to play, and Captain Cat is ready to eat. One of the birds misunderstands Captain Cat's intentions and gets a blue whale to shake the ship, only to find that the other two birds aren't endangered at all. Instead, they are having a lovely time with Captain Cat. Soon all three birds, the blue whale, and Captain Cat are five good friends having lunch under the sun. Told in simple rhyming couplets with a little onomatopoeia mixed in--"Whoosh. Bam. Splash. Bump. Plop. Crash"--and illustrated in saturated, boldly colored digital design, this whimsical easy reader is highly accessible without losing its sweetness. VERDICT Newly independent readers will find this book a silly, fun first read.--Jennifer MiskecCopyright 2022 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
