“When everyone is afraid of you, it’s hard to make any friends,” discovers Bully Bird, a member of the Bad Bird Bunch. His transformation from bully to benign bird comes as a result of Brendon Mouse, whose altruism saves the day.
In this second book in Greg Watkins’ Big Bill and Buddies Series, the Bad Bird Bunch is stuck in a tree as a hungry alligator waits below. Brendon Mouse asks his friend Ellie Funt to help get the birds to safety. The Bad Bird Bunch are shocked when Ellie, Brendon Mouse, Bartholomew Worm, Bob Cat, DJ Dog, and Bill, the Big Beaked, Big Bellied Bird, the star of Watkins’ first book, rush to rescue them.
This book about the value of friendship and helping others—even those who may not be your friends—teaches children that sometimes offering assistance can help everyone in the end.
