“Somewhere high above the South Pole…”

Bird & Squirrel have gotten themselves into a whole lot of trouble in the South Pole in the latest installment of the colorful Bird & Squirrel comic series for kids. The bright yellow Bird is a bit flighty (ha!) but his heart is in the right place – although he forgets it for a while in this entertaining story. When the two are flying high above the South Pole, an unexpected accident lands them in a village full of penguins who are facing some rather tough times. A bully of a whale is forcing them to catch tons of fish every day to feed him, in return for not being eaten. That leaves barely enough time to collect food for themselves, and swimming in the beautiful bay is impossible with the hungry creature lurking.

Squirrel is a bit the nervous type, but he would never abandon a friend in need (even if said friend is currently acting a bit too big for his britches). When the penguin tribe decides that Bird is the “chosen one”, his friend takes all the adulation (and free food) a little too much to heart. But when Squirrel uncovers a plan to use Bird in a way that wasn’t intended, it’s up to him to save his friend – and perhaps the whole tribe in the process. That’s a tall order, but thankfully Squirrel doesn’t have to go it alone. He has made a new friend of the incredibly capable Sakari, a young penguin who only wishes to see her village happy, but doesn’t always agree with the chief on the right way to go about making that happen.

Overall, Bird & Squirrel On Ice is an enjoyable read, filled with enchanting illustrations that are sure to appeal to the young audience it is intended for. While there is a lot of kid friendly humor spread throughout the book, there are also some important morals to the story. As kids giggle at Bird’s antics and Squirrel’s neuroses, they also learn lessons about staying true to your friends – even when they momentarily lose their minds. It’s a quick, fun read that will have kids begging for more – and any book that gets kids excited about reading is a success in my book.
