Coverly, Dave Night of the Living Shadows, 122 pgs. CHAPTER BOOK Christy Ottaviano Books, 2016 (Henry Holt and Company). $13.99 Content: G.
Speed Bump and Slingshot are two birds that are best friends. They have to go on a scavenger hunt for their Boy Scout assignment and they find a bird friend named Nuthatch who takes them to the local mall to find their treasures. They end up having an adventure at the local mall.
This book is funny and the story is easy to follow along. The characters are good to each other and the adventure makes you want to keep reading to see what happens next. The illustrations are in black and white and could be better, but they still add a lot to the story.
