Helms does an excellent job combining strange and colorful art, the concepts of opposites, and a tale of a friendship surprise.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

As a child, did you ever think all of your friends had forgotten about you? Did it ever feel like your friends were deliberately avoiding you or were out doing something totally awesome without you? 
This is exactly where Birdie finds himself one day in this beautifully produced picture book, Outside Inside. When Birdie does not see his friends around, he decides to look for them. Just when Birdie is about to give up and go back to his nest, his friends surprise him. They open up, invite him inside and reveal what they had been up to all along.
 Outside Inside is a simple and clever story about the joy of friendship and giving. Using 35 easy words and 26 pages of vivid illustrations, it is geared toward the youngest of readers, but the catchy story is attention grabbing for adults as well. The adults will appreciate the deeper double meaning as Birdie's change of heart corresponds with the action around the outside and inside settings.
