Those Darn Squirrels! by Adam Rubin, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri

A quirky, funny story, Those Darn Squirrels is about a man who loves birds. He wants them to stay near his home year-round and so sets out multiple birdfeeders filled with delicious things. However, the food attracts more than just birds...those darn squirrels want some, too!

In this silly but sweet tale, Old Man Fookwire learns to appreciate other creatures besides birds. We also see the great ingenuity and generosity that lies in the hearts of squirrels and discover the value of friendship, even from unusual sources. The spare, funky illustrations lend the perfect charm to this great picture book. Check it out for a good laugh!
