Night of the Living Shadows

A Speed Bump & Slingshot Misadventure

Written and Illustrated by Dave Coverly

Cheeseable mercy!! The bird friends Speed Bump and Slingshot are at it again in Dave Coverly’s second book Night of the Living Shadows. This time the best friends are trying to earn their last badge, the Scavenger badge, to become Eagle Scouts. And trying to earn it takes the two on a hilarious misadventure that is sure to make kids laugh. Between meeting “crazy” characters, getting trapped in a shopping mall (and a lady’s purse), and eating junk food, it’s a wonder if they will succeed. This is a very funny book with equally funny black and white illustrations that I think kids will love to read.
