A little sparrow displays big courage as she journeys across the iconic New York City skyline to save a flock of travelling birds. With showstopping artwork from Bruce Degen, illustrator of the Magic School Bus series.

Scoot! Busy people on the bustling New York City streets shout at a little sparrow, but Scoot loves exploring the tasty smells and sparkling sights of the city with her new friend Scram. Busy cabs on Fifth Avenue. Glitzy dancers at Radio City Music Hall. Shoemakers, dressmakers, and bakers working all day. Scoot wants to be a part of it all, but what can a little bird do?
“Rise up!” answered Scoot.
“Follow me! Aim high:
I see a way we can help
in the sky!”
When flocks of migrating birds get lost among the shiny windows and nighttime lights, Scoot and her new friends guide the birds to safety, discovering that she can do more than get out of the way.
Inspired by the real danger skyscrapers pose to urban wildlife, Fran Manushkin, author of the beloved Katie Woo series and member the New York Audubon Society, has crafted an uplifting tale with an important urban ecological message.
Illustrator of beloved children’s books like The Magic School Bus series and Jamberry, Bruce Degen captures the dazzling views and lively energy of the city in vibrant gouache. Scoot! tells a classic New York City story from the perspective of the city’s most overlooked residents with wonder and heart.
