Staff Reviews

Whether the little readers identify most with the grump (who incidentally has the soul of an artist), the squirrels, or even the birds, they will come away from this book with valuable insights about persistence, problem-solving and peace-making. This book is a great fall read-along because it mentions migration and a laugh fest at any time of the year. 

— Carol Muller


The story of what happens when a grumpy old man and some mischievous squirrels match wits--with hilarious results.
Old Man Fookwire is a grump who only likes to paint pictures of birds that visit his backyard. The problem is, they fly south every winter, leaving him sad and lonely. So he decides to get them to stay by putting up beautiful birdfeeders filled with seeds and berries. Unfortunately, the squirrels like the treats, too, and make a daring raid on the feeders. The conflict escalates--until the birds depart (as usual), and the squirrels come up with a plan that charms the old grump.
