Rio: The Movie Storybook
(HarperFestival, Feb. 22, 2011)
From the makers of the hit Ice Age series comes Rio, a comedy adventure about a domesticated blue Spix's Macaw named Blu, who travels to the faraway and exotic land of Rio de Janeiro to find Jewel, the only other bird of his species. Not long after Blu and his owner, Linda, arrive in Rio, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of a group of wisecracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu will escape the kidnappers, learn to fly, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.
