Eep! by Joke van Leeuwen

Release Date: March 1st 2012

Warren is a birdwatcher. One day he found something in the bushes. It was a bird! Sort of... it had wings like a bird. But had feet like a person. It didn't look like an angel because it didn't have arms like an angel was supposed to have. He looked around, yelled if it was anyone's, yelled that he was taking it, and the proceeded to do just that. And left. He's wife Tina and him took to their "Beedy" who could actually talk. But what Beedy really wanted to do was be free. So goes the tale of Warren, Tina, a girl named Lottie, and a rescuer trying to see Beady again to say goodbye.

This was such a crazy good book. Just pure fun. I have no idea why but it reminded me of a book Roald Dahl would write. It was that good. Beedy was able to change every life she encountered without knowing it. She was just a bird/girl who wanted peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and to fly. What more could you want in life? Warren and Tina became her parents and they loved her so much and wanted to protect her. I had mixed feelings with Lottie on account of she kind of forcibly made her into her friend. Well her and Warren and Tina kind of also did but not as much as Lottie. They did it without knowing really what they were getting themselves into. I mean who would have thought they would be meeting someone like Beedy? Poor rescuer. The whole thing kind of ruined his life and he needed closure.

This book was just silly and sweet and wonderful. It was cute and funny and just fantastic. I loved every minute of it. I loved the illustrations as well. They were a perfect mix to the story. Very entertaining seeing them with how the story was playing out. I'm so happy I was able to read this lovely little adventure book.
