About the Book

Two accidental friends use innovation, trial and error, and some help from an unusual acquaintance to find their way home again.

Peeper the bird and Zeep the alien both love to fly. When the little bird and the young alien meet after a tumble from the sky, they must band together to figure out a way home. With the help of the innovative but eccentric A. Frog, the three friends try various machines to get Peeper and Zeep off the ground and back home. One machine leaves them stuck in a pond. Another leaves them stuck in a tree. So the three friends cooperate to design an alternate solution. Peeper and Zeep learn the meaning of friendship and family.
