ABOUT THE BOOK
From New York Times bestselling illustrator Scott Magoon and If I Were a Dog author Jamie A. Swenson comes CHIRP!: Chipmunk Sings for a Friend (On Sale July 13, 2021| Paula Wiseman Books), a sweet and funny picture book about a singing chipmunk looking for a friend to sing along.
Chipmunk spends her days sitting on her rock and chirping her song—sometimes it’s happy, sometimes it’s bittersweet, and sometimes it’s very sad indeed. When Chipmunk goes off to find a companion that will sing along with her, she encounters some bumps (and pine cones) along the way, and finds friends (and harmonies) in unexpected places.
CHIRP! is a poignant and charming celebration of true friendship, brought to life by Scott Magoon’s captivating, vibrant illustrations, the perfect new read-aloud for this summer’s reading list.
