Three little birds take you ‘Up, Tall and High!’

Avian rivalry is much the same as sibling rivalry – who’s taller? Faster? Smarter? And in the case of the three birds in Ethan Long’s latest release, I wonder who’s the funniest.

Up, Tall and High! by Ethan Long is three stories in one book. Three kooky, colourful birds explore the concepts of ‘up’, ‘tall’ and ‘high’ with a humorous twist.

I could spend lots of time telling you about this funny book, or you could hear it told by the author himself! Watch the video clip below and take note of Long’s comic reading style.

It’s refreshing to come across a simple, funny book that is suitable for children as young as one year old. Even the littlest of kids will appreciate the obvious, visual gags such as a tree falling over because it’s overloaded with birds. Little kids will also enjoy the oversized flaps that extend the reading fun (literally!).
