What did you like about the book? Peeper is a little bird who gets hurt and lost.  Zeep is an alien who crashes his spaceship on earth and gets lost.  They find each other and together find an inventor, Frog, who tries his hardest to get Peeper and Zeep home, but nothing works out the way he would like.  They all rest and then decide to work together!  Eventually, Zeep’s parents and Peeper’s parents find them and everyone is happy.

This is a great story about making friends and working together.  It’s also a great book about having patience!  The illustrations are so cute and simple as are the words in the book.

Anything you didn’t like about it?  There is nothing I didn’t like about this book.

To whom would you recommend this book? This is a great story about making friends and working together.  It’s also a great book about having patience.  Since the word structure is very simple, kids who are learning to read will like this book.  Some read-a-likes are “Me and Meow” and “Ping Wants to Play” by the same author, Adam Gudeon.

Who should buy this book? Children’s libraries

Where would you shelve it? juvenile beginner reader

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? no
