Since Chirp was first hatched on the pages of Chirp Magazine, hundreds of thousands of children have fallen head-over-boots for this loveable character. The Chirp Book is a special 10th anniversary release and a collection of the four books in the series by the same name. It also features special bonus material, including the first Chirp comic, a behind-the-scenes look at the illustrator’s studio, and a lesson on how to draw Chirp.
