Old Man Fookwire has a plan. He'll build some birdfeeders and fill them with yummy seeds and berries. That way, the wild birds he loves so much will stick around for the winter...instead of flying south. But there are other hungry creatures in the forest, and they have plans too.
Those darn squirrels!
Why you should read it:
Author Adam Rubin has created a wonderful story about one old, grumpy man whose only pleasure out of life is painting pictures of the birds flocking to his backyard. But soon it's man against beast as the old man decides to entice the birds to stay for the winter with bird feeders, only to find himself in the middle of a squirrel war as the crafty creatures devise their own plan to steal all the bird food.
Daniel Salmieri's hilarious illustrations compliment this squirrely tale of food fights and bird feeder domination as readers are left wondering who will win this silly bird seed war?
A great addition to any home library!
