Description

Three brave knights to the rescue!
Chirp and his friends Squawk and Tweet love going on adventures together. Today, they've traded in their playhouse for a castle — a castle they defend from a fire-breathing creature!
How will the brave knights in shining armor outsmart the dreaded beast? To find out, join Sir Chirp, Sir Tweet, and Sir Squawk in a heroic adventure, complete with knights, castles, and...a sheep dragon?
The Chirp books invite readers into a world of imagination where Chirp, Squawk, and Tweet work together to solve problems, using everyday objects and their limitless imaginations. Based on episodes of the Kids' CBC TV show "Chirp" and inspired by Chirp Magazine, the Chirp books are designed to encourage learning through imaginative play and will open up the world to preschoolers, one awesome adventure at a time.
