See Pip Flap (The Adventures of Otto) by David Milgrim

Can Otto Help Pip Fly?

 Pip sees Tweet flap wings and soar into the sky.
"Fly Tweet, fly. / Bye, Tweet, bye."
Pip starts flapping and flapping but with no success. In fact, Pip is still flapping well into the night.

Otto starts to work creating Pip a remote control device to fly, which suffices for a while but isn't the same as flying. Soon Pip is back to flapping and attempting to soar into the sky.
"Flap, flap, flap. / Flap, flap . . . / . . . flop."
Will Otto be able to help?


My Thoughts

What Concerned Me: Nothing

What I Liked Most: Using very few words and lots of repetition, Milgrim has created a very cute Pre-Level One book. This short story manages to include friendship, creativity, and problem-solving.
