The First Trip by Paris Tompkins

tripReviewed by Cy Hilterman

The Oodle family lives in Oodleville. They like living in Oodleville but wondered what was beyond their land but they were a bit frightened to travel to the Land Beyond. This changed when Mama Oodlebird reached her one-hundredth birthday. You see, in Oodleville, when the Oodle-birds reached that age, they were able to fly high enough to get out of their valley and travel, with an Oodle family member on their back, to see what was beyond their beautiful valley. Mama Oodle-bird could now fly two hundred miles and high enough to get over the mountains.
