Animals. Siblings. Cartoons. What more could a kid ask for? In Ruth McNally Barshaw’s third sketch diary featuring Ellie McDoodle, Ellie has to overcome her fear of presentations, find her neighbour’s bird (that escaped during Ellie’s pet-sitting adventure) and deal with a lively family.
Fun activities are sprinkled throughout the book, such as making an origami penguin or how to draw a llama. The last half of the book has a flying bird in the top right corner, and when you flip the pages, the bird looks like it’s flying. Cool!
