When a strange egg appears in their nest, Mr. and Mrs. Bird kindly take it upon themselves to raise the "baby bird" inside. But when the egg hatches, the Birds are in for a big surprise--"Junior" is the oddest-looking baby bird they've ever seen--with big, long jaws full of teeth and an appetite to match. In fact, he looks more like a baby alligator than a baby bird! Nevertheless, the devoted Birds run themselves ragged feeding Junior until he gets so big, he must leave the nest or it will collapse underneath him. But how can Junior fly without wings? To the delight of the Birds--and readers!--the dilemma is solved when Junior takes off from a branch overlooking a pond.

From Our Editors

An unusual egg appears in Mr. and Mrs. Bird`s nest. As loving parents, they raise the baby inside. When Junior hatches with big, long jaws full of teeth and a monstrous appetite, he looks more like a baby alligator than a bird, still his dutiful parents knock themselves out trying to feed him. He soon gets so big, he has to leave the nest before he breaks it. How will he fly without wings? P.D. Eastman`s classic Flap Your Wings is a funny, charming I Can Read It All By Myself book for children ages five to eight.
