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.
