This hilariously eye-popping book showcases real-world angry birds and 50 fantastic stories peppered with tips to avoid them, as well as fascinating facts about angry bird behavior. In addition to the funny and light-hearted real-life angry bird stories, National Geographic Angry Birds: Fed up, Feathered, and Furious tells, for the first time ever, the story of the Angry Birds we all know and love from the hit game. Angry Bird fans will finally get to learn the personality, name, and all the details of each of the iconic Angry Birds. The Angry Birds' stories have been TOP SECRET until now, and are only revealed in this book!
Rovio graphics and National Geographic photography are featured throughout. Structured like the game which progresses in degree of difficulty, the book progresses in degree of anger and devotes a chapter to each level of anger intensity: Annoyed, Testy, Outraged, and Furious. Readers discover the world's angriest real bird at the end.

I am a retired school librarian, so usually don't run into problems. I have used National Geographic books since my own children were small and really liked them.
That being said, I really don't like the content of much of this book. I bought it for a grandchild's birthday. He reads and comprehends at a 6th grade level and enjoys "fact books". He reads many books and magazines by NG, but he is 8.
This book is disturbing to me even as an adult reader. Tho it is interesting, it gives you the same creepy feeling as Daphne du Maurier's book and movie by Alfred Hitchcock "The Birds".
This is NOT just "Angry Birds", but people attacking with a vengeance birds. You will be eyeing the ones outside with an uneasy feeling after reading thru this!
I would recommend it only with reader cautions.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I think this book is great. I have birds and deemed one of mine the original Angry Bird. He hates everyone but me (but I think I'm just tolerated). My Birds & I go to schools to educate kids about them as pets. This was a great addition to our program. I think the kids will enjoy it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
