'City Birds' by Dean Norman takes a true event, and creates some fun comics around it. It's gentle humor that would work well for younger readers.
Beginning with the story behind the comics, we learn that they were inspired by two falcons building a nest in Cincinatti. Since it happened close to Independence Day, the city named the eggs Stars and Stripes. The comics take place shortly before the eggs hatch and deal with things like the cameras watching them, or the odd sort of meals to be found in a city. There is sibling rivalry and birds on a ledge in peril, or are they?
The art is fine, as are the cartoons. This is probably really best for children as the humor is pretty simple. I liked it ok, but might not have picked it up if I hadn't been given a copy.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Star Bright Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
