A flying masked bandit (code name: Chickadee) discovers he isnât quite who he thinks he is in this fresh and delightful tale about discovering oneâs true nature.
Meet Chickadee. Criminal. Rapscallion. All-around bad seed. Sure, he started out obeying the rules, following his parentsâ advice about finding things to eat and staying away from houses. But then . . . winter arrives. And itâs so much harder to find food in winter! So when Chickadee spies a âvaultâ full of âgoldâ near a house by the park (Wait, wasnât there something to remember about houses?), he cleverly devises a plan to snatch the âvault full of treasureâ without getting caught! He is the King of Thieves! Only, hmm, the humans near the vault seem to want him to visit. Maybe Chickadeeâs not a criminal after all?
Monica Silvieâs fun first-person storytelling will have readers falling in love with this cheeky and enormously appealing bird and his endearingly misinformed self-perception. Chickadeeâs growing understanding that heâs not actually a criminal, and that what he really wants is a friend, adds a lovely poignancy to the humor. Elina Ellisâs charming, hilarious illustrations bring the adorable Chickadee to life; the way he looks directly at readers with wide-eyed sincerity while he speaks to them is particularly effective. A spread at the back contains facts about black-capped chickadees â illustrated with comments from Chickadee himself â along with further reading and sources, making this both a terrific picture book read-aloud and a great supplement to life science lessons on characteristics and habitats of animals. With such a seamless blend of entertainment and information, learning has never been so much fun!
