In the grand finale of Elise Gravel's graphic chapter book series that Kirkus called "a charming treasure," Arlo the crow is going to be a dad!

Check out the third and final book in the new early graphic chapter book series starring Arlo the crow and Pips. This HarperAlley series has received two starred reviews for its blend of smart humor and crow facts as well as praise from Ben Clanton, creator of Narwhal and Jelly, who called it "fun and informative!"Goodbye, bachelor life in the city, hello, family nest in the suburbs! After meeting Marla and deciding she was THE ONE, Arlo is ready to commit and start a family. After all, crows mate for life! But being a dad doesn't mean Arlo is suddenly giving up his love for shiny things or showing off less. It just means he will have a new audience to impress and even teach! Parenting is tough even for a genius like Arlo. He and Marla will have their hands full with feeding and teaching their chicks how to fly, hunt, speak, and maybe dance a bit of ballet, but thankfully Uncle Pips is here to help.This final story has snappy dialogue paired with a limited color scheme that's perfect for newly independent readers, and tons of amazing "kid-pleasing" bird facts—each marked with a star on the page. From acclaimed author-illustrator Elise Gravel.
