        Nerdy Birdy and Vulture, who became pals in 2015’s Nerdy Birdy, return in this social media–themed sequel, which puts their relationship to the test after Nerdy Birdy starts making online friends on Tweetster and ignoring the friend right in front of him. After @nerdybirdy tweets an unflattering lunch photo of @vulturegirl (“She eats dead things. Ewwwwwww!!”), Vulture has had enough, leading to a line that seems to sum up the book’s reason for existence: “Just because you thought it, doesn’t mean you should tweet it.” It’s advice that translates just fine to nondigital situations (“If you can’t say something nice...”), but despite Reynolds’s sharp dialogue and Davies’s appealingly ugly-cute illustrations, the plot feels mismatched to the book’s audience—though kids will get the Angry Worms reference just fine. Ages 4–8. Agent: Paul Rodeen, Rodeen Literary Management.

        An unlikely avian friendship is threatened by an obsession with social media in this follow-up to Nerdy Birdy (2015).Big slouchy Vulture and Nerdy Birdy, tiny and brown with big, round eyeglasses, are best friends, though they're very different. Nerdy Birdy loves playing video games, while Vulture loves snacking on dead things. Together, they enjoy taking goofy pictures of each other, making silly faces, and making fun of each other's lunch. One day, Nerdy Birdy discovers an amazing new game. It's called Tweetster; it does awesome things. After a week, Nerdy Birdy has over 500 new friends across the globe, but he doesn't seem to notice the friend right in front of him. Vulture gets bored and flies away, but joining Tweetster herself restores common ground between the friends. But when Vulture logs onto the site, she finds a picture of herself and an insulting caption from Nerdy Bird. This thoughtless act causes Vulture to flap away for good. Nerdy Birdy reaches out for sympathy to his virtual network, but the response is underwhelming. Determined to find Vulture, Nerdy Birdy searches high and low, finally finding her and declaring, "One real live you is worth a thousand Tweetster friends." Reynolds' friendship fable is straightforwardly told. Davies' lively and imaginative pictures, in pen, ink, and watercolor, consistently delight. But are very young readers, at whom the book seems aimed, using social media? Still, cute and clever, and if it gives some prophylactic friendship pointers to children not yet networked, here's hoping they'll remember them. (Picture book. 3-5)
