Bird's Town Presents: Chick Rebuilds (Play the game from Joyrocks!)
When the evil Bloodhound Cat Gang destroys Bird's Town and kills or enslaves most of the inhabitants, Chick, a brave little bluebird, follows his instinct to the peaceful island of Green Valley, far from any feline danger. Or so he thinks. While Chick tries to rebuild his life and Aviaria-a safe haven for all birds-he discovers that Green Valley has a dark secret all its own. An ancient avian civilization vanished, seemingly, without a trace.
Further exploration of the island uncovers a trail of vague clues about the ancient avians' doom. A doom they predicted. A doom they could not stop. A doom that could arise once more to wipe out Aviaria and everybirdy and everything Chick holds dearest. Now it's up to Chick and a ragtag flock of refugee birds to piece together what really happened on Green Valley so long ago, thwart the sinister plot, and save all birdkind from extinction.
Hundreds of years after the death of Earth, the Nations have built a thriving community of lucky refugees on multiple space stations orbiting the desolate planet's atmosphere. The Global Air Defense has finally achieved the ability for interstellar space travel, completing a space ship to travel the stars and find a new planet for the remaining human population. To make their plan work, the GAD must trust an ally they've only ever treated as a second-class citizen: the planet-bound, those left to fight to survive on Earth. Louise Wyndham, contact for the black market smuggling ring of Puget City, becomes the first planet-bound trainee enlisted in the GAD, rising quickly to graduate as the first planet-bound officer. But nothing can prepare her for the struggles of coming face to face with the ship-born and their generations of prejudices about the planet-bound. When the ship Hickory finds a planet that meets all of the criteria, Louise finds herself in a new fight; more than just a fight against her surroundings, more than just a fight to prove that she's capable―no matter where she came from. . . this is a fight for survival. Will the rest of the crew set aside their prejudices? Or will they lead themselves, and humanity, into destruction?
Giants are mean and hate everyone; dragonflies are food, not friends; and nobody is as important as the toads. That's what the Wise One says, at least. But one curious little toad, fresh from the pond, asks, "Why?"
In fact, he has a lot of questions, so Brother Toad sets off into the Big Wide World, seeking answers. Along the way, however, he finds trouble. . . big trouble. When the giants pollute and destroy his wetlands, it's up to Brother Toad to save his family.
With the help of some unlikely friends, Brother Toad learns the truth about the giants, the dragonflies, and the Big Wide World. In the end, he proves that everyone is important, and that even one little toad can make a big difference in the world—he just has to be brave, curious, and clever.
Based on a true story, this family-friendly tale encourages everyone to ask questions, explore the world, and learn about the people and creatures in it. With an emphasis on conservation and kindness to nature, this book blends an action-packed story, beautiful, hand-painted artwork, an informative non-fiction section, and a special invitation from the author to create a wonderful book for all ages.
