You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why, Santa Bird is coming to town. Truth be told, even after this many years the part about knowing whether you’re asleep or awake is pretty horrifying and would still make for a great horror movie plot. That being said, without further ado, this time the Angry Birds are already preparing for the festivities, by decorating their island for Christmas and even the pigs are doing their best for the holidays. Instead of simple gags, we’re in for a complete Christmas tale, with none other than the silent Terence in the lead.


All of the different Angry Birds gather around uncle Eagle, who invited everyone over for a wondrous Christmas tale, to dive right into the coziest festivities of the year. Little did the birds know they would be the main stars of the story, or more specifically the ‘little Terence’. Well, actually he isn’t little nor small, he actually is the biggest of them all. Terence has always been very fond of Christmas, and even more accurately, of Santa. He wants to know more of how Santa does his job, or how the reindeers are able to fly, or how Santa can deliver all of the presents in one night. When asking guidance from his own family, it seems they are all too busy preparing for Christmas, to help Terence with his questions. Truth be told, it’s hard to know what Terence wants, as he doesn’t speak or has no arms to point out what he needs.

Nonetheless, Terence is still determined to find answers for his meaningful questions, even if he has to head to the pigs to get them. That being said, the pigs haven’t sat still during this period, as they suddenly have a catapult in their base akin to those of the Angry Birds. Even though he doesn’t like it at first, he finds use for the catapult when he asks the pigs to shoot him in a direction that could help him answer his questions, most presumably the north pole. When the other Angry Birds notice that Terence appears to be missing, they decide to go on a journey to bring him home safe and sound.

The flow of this issue is totally different compared to the fourth album, as we’re now treated to a complete story, rather than short stories or gags. Truth be told, this longer story is a tad more amusing, especially for the younger audience, as the story makes for one big great whole, instead of a few gags that hit their mark while many others might miss the punch-line. The story is very pleasantly written and also accessible for an older audience, who are fond of heartwarming Christmas stories.

Again the quality of the illustrations is very amusing and authentic. The bright colors that are used add to the overall atmosphere and everything proves to be rather detailed for such a ‘comical’ style. It’s still sad to see that the artists remain uncredited in this fifth album.


Angry Birds #5 Jingle Birds is a fun addition to the series and excels compared to the previous album. You’ll be able to enjoy one big and amusing story about the holiday season, rather than short gags, which is about a young bird wanting to bring smiles to the faces of many, whilst he might not always look like the cheeriest one of the bunch himself. Fun for young and old, man, woman or bird, happy or angry.
