Synopsis

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! In this whimsical picture book, a grumpy old man and some mischievous squirrels match wits - with hilarious results. Winner of a 2009 Borders Original Voices Award, and a 2009 Children's Choice Award nominee.
