The author of Creepy Carrots! (2012) takes a humorous look at avian friendships. The cool birdies (with their abs of steel, superior vision, and sculpted chest muscles) will have nothing to do with bespectacled, tiny-winged, allergic Nerdy Birdy, so he joins the other nerdy birds, who spend their time reading and playing World of Wormcraft. Then Vulture moves into the neighborhood, and neither group wants to hang out with the carrion-eating creature. Remembering what it's like to be lonely, Nerdy Birdy extends the wing of friendship and discovers that even though he and Vulture have few common interests, they like each other. Davies' detailed and slightly satirical illustrations reflect the influence of his years as an editorial cartoonist, especially in the spreads depicting the cool birdies demonstrating their impressive (labeled) attributes. This will work best as a one-on-one so that readers have a chance to fully absorb the illustrative details. Pair with Philip C. Stead's Hello, My Name Is Ruby (2013) for a different approach to bird friendships.

Nerdy Birdy likes reading, video games, and reading about video games, which immediately disqualifies him for membership in the cool crowd. One thing is clear: being a nerdy birdy is a lonely lifestyle. When he's at his lowest point, Nerdy Birdy meets a flock just like him. He has friends and discovers that there are far more nerdy birdies than cool birdies in the sky.
