A hilarious and factual introduction to the Amazonian hoatzin—or stinkbird—and its surprising, incredible superpower. (Spoiler alert: it's more than just the stink!)

Stinkbirds have a lot in common with other birds: they have feathers, wings, and a beak. But they also have . . . a hidden superpower!

    Papa Stinkbird can't wait to tell readers just what makes stinkbird chicks so special, but his adorable son keeps interrupting with questions. They banter about the cool things hoatzins do to evade predators and then the chick demonstrates one—jumping into the river! (Don't worry—he can swim!) But he can't fly yet, so how is the chick going to get back up to the nest? You'll have to read to find out his real superpower.

Series Overview: Parrotfish Has a Superpower coming Summer 2024.
