Little Brown Bird always says “peep,” just like Crow saws “caw,” Dove says “coo,” and Cardinal says “chip.” But one day, Little Brown Bird wants to say something else… so he does—“froodle sproodle!” Crow isn’t amused and insists he stick with “peep,” but Little Brown Bird just can’t help himself. He keeps shouting silly phrases, and soon even Dove and Cardinal join in on the silliness. Crow flies away, appalled at the silliness and convinced that there’s no such thing as a silly crow. But soon enough, he rejoins his friends with a blurted “Wuppy!” and from then on, everyone in the neighborhood has enjoyed making whatever fun sounds they wanted.
