Product Details


“Rhyming text, composed into short, approachable verses, will appeal to those just stretching their independent reading skills or those seeking a story with connections to bird ­migration or urban life. . . . With memorable, colorful illustrations filled with New York City sights, this rhyming story ties together Scoot’s ambitions to survive in the big city and kindly help others navigate the migration path.”—School Library Journal

“Snappy, staccato text by Manushkin (Plenty of Hugs) energizes this metropolitan tale about a new New Yorker contributing to the city’s welfare. . . . In architecturally attentive pencil and gouache panels, Degen (the Magic School Bus series) zooms in tight to see action from a sparrow’s-eye view, then pans wide to present famous city landmarks, changing perspectives to chime with the sparky narration in a title that shows how everyone has gifts to give.”—Publishers Weekly

“Melodious, sprightly text charts the course. . . . Degen’s detailed, bustling pencil-and-watercolor cartoons present a variety of perspectives, from aerial streetscape views to binocular-like closeups of Scoot in action.”—Booklist

“An intriguing idea. . . .”—Kirkus Reviews
