Those Darn Squirrels!
by Adam Rubin
Illustrated by David Salmieri
Genre: Picture Book
Synopsis: Old Man Fookwire is a grump. The only thing he really likes is painting picture of the birds that visit his little old house near the forest. When the time comes for the birds to fly south for the winter, Old Man Fookwire hatches a plan to keep them close by: He builds birdfeeders and fills them with yummy seeds and berries in the hopes that his beautiful birds will stick around.
But there are other hungry creatures in the nearby forest, and they have plans too. This is a story of what happens when a grumpy old man and some mischievous squirrels match wits-with hilarious results.
From the back of the book
Review: I just love this book because it reminds me of how much my dad hates squirrels-they scare away the birds from the birdfeeders. The story and the illustrations are hilarious! And I also love just how clever those squirrels are! My kids really enjoyed the story as well and would giggle at the antics of the squirrels. The squirrels definitely showed a lot of ingenuity in this story. I look forward to reading the sequels to this picture book.
