Description
"Old Man Fookwire ... was a grump. He hated pie. He hated puppies. The only thing he liked was birds." From this introduction, Adam Rubin gives us a tale of irritability, ingenuity, and unexpected indulgence, for readers up to 9, as Fookwire builds increasingly sophisticated birdfeeders to keep his migrating friends around a little longer while thwarting those "fuzzy little geniuses," the squirrels, who keep stealing the birdfeed. Yet after the birds do leave, the squirrels decide to thank the lonely grump who inadvertently fed them. Fanciful birds, irresistible squirrels, and exasperated expressions abound in Daniel Salmieri's sophisticated watercolor cartoons.

"This simple tale has a sneaky, edgy humor that erupts into hilarity as well as a warm, stabilizing feeling for humanity in all of its quirky manifestations.... What happens to the squirrels, the birds, and to Old Man Fookwire is a symphony of regret, respect, and sweetness. Readers will want to linger over this book and treasure every page."School Library Journal
