There Is a Bird on Your Head! Written and illustrated by Mo Willems. Hyperion, H B Fenn. 2007. $9.99 ages 3 and up

"Is something on my head?
There is a bird on your head.
There is a bird on my head?"

When Elephant is reassured by Piggie that there is no longer a bird on his head, he seems content...until Piggie announces that he has TWO birds on his head! They are there because they are in love! Piggie knows that because they are building a nest and it's on Gerald's head, too! Why, he wonders? Well, why do birds build nests? You know, don't you? It isn't long until the eggs are laid...three of them, in fact! Oh, and then they hatch, and now Gerald has three chicks, two birds and a nest on his head! The solution to getting rid of them is so simple...and uniquely hilarious!

It's no wonder kids love them!
