Description

Chirp and his friends Squawk and Tweet love going on adventures together. Today they’ve traded in their playhouse for a rocky mountain. Their plan? To complete the hardest climb of their lives!

Their hardest climb becomes even harder when the mountain begins to rumble and shake beneath their feet! And...is that burning hot lava heading straight for them?! How will mountain climbers Chirp, Squawk, and Tweet escape a spewing volcano and travel down the mountain to safety?

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. Inspired by Chirp Magazine and based on episodes of the Kids' CBC TV show Chirp, 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.
