Little Bird, Biddle Bird

David Kirk. Scholastic Press, $9.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-439-26092-3

""Little bird, Biddle bird,/ Time for your snack./ But Mommy is busy/ And hasn't come back."" Little Bird, Biddle Bird is the first book in a new series from David Kirk, creator of Miss Spider. His trademark illustrations add dimension to the diminutive hero and play up the menacing look of a devilish cat, as Biddle bird searches for food and finds it. The small paper-over-board format and bright illustrations are just right for little hands. ( Apr.)
