One of Peter Brown’s earlier picture books, Flight of the Dodo features four flightless birds who want to experience their first “bird’s eye view.” They manage to build a craft that flies, but will need help when they encounter a thunderstorm.
The illustrations are whimsical and feature lots of fun details that make the story comical. Children will also love that it features poop as a central theme! While it doesn’t have the polish of Peter’s later books, this is a fun story that will get lots of laughs.
