bad idea

The overly optimistic Bird, and fearfully pessimistic Squirrel face off against a killer whale in their brand new adventure. Bird's penchant for embellishing tales, not to mention his own abilities, is going to get him killed when the two fall upon a village of beleaguered penguins. It is up to Squirrel, having been observant, and their new friend Sakari, who has a much more sensible personality, to come the rescue. This latest graphic novel comes off a little more serious than the last. The harsh lifestyle of the penguins is based on the reality of northern peoples who have the specific skills required to survive. It is Bird and Squirrel who are ill-equiped and need their help. On the other hand, the cartoonish look counters this, especially in the funny movements and expressions of the characters. Without this visual exaggeration, many of the recycled jokes would become dull very quickly. Thanks to it though, the pace remains lively and the quips are well received.
