Review: Nerdy Bird is not accepted among the cool birds and feels rejected until invited to hang out with other less-than-cool birds. Enter a new bird that acts all aloof, only wears black, and eats dead animals, and Nerdy Birdy gets the opportunity to show friendliness. Witty cartoon-style illustrations and the author's subtle wry humor make for a laugh-laden tale that opens discussions about groupthink, social hierarchy, exclusion, and acceptance.
