These are all fun books I enjoyed reading with my 7 year old. Big Sis thinks they are absolutely amazing! Now we are both excited to see the film in theaters. The Angry Birds Movie, based on the international video game phenomenon, arrives in theaters spring 2016. With a star-studded cast that includes Jason Sudekis, Josh Gad, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Dinklage, this film will finally answer the question: why are the birds so angry?
