Product Details



From USA Today:
Part geography lesson, part introduction ornithology, United Tweets is all fun. It imagines a feathered pageant matching the 50 state birds, from Alabama’s wood-pecking yellowhammer to Wyoming’s western meadowlark, the most popular of all state birds. (It’s also claimed by Oregon, North Dakota, Montana, Nebraska and Kansas.) Hudson Talbott’s whimsical drawings are mixed with facts: Hawaii’s nee is the rarest state bird. The Rhode Island red, a purebed chicken, has its own monument, erected by a “grateful and well-fed public.” And New Mexico’s greater roadrunner has been clocked at more than 18 mph but does not say “beep-beep”.

“Gather all of your chuckle-bellied trivia snatchers for a rollicking romp through the states..[T]his book is a hoot!”–School Library Journal (Starred Review)

“Deliciously outrageous”–Publisher’s Weekly (Starred Review)

“This rollicking roll call of state fast facts takes the form of a pageant of birds, each introducing their home state in ways that will delight trivia fans. Where U.S. geography is part of the elementary-school curriculum, this lighthearted look at the 50 states (plus the District of Columbia) will be welcome.”–Kirkus Reviews
