Those Darn Squirrels
Written by: Adam Rubin

Published by: Clarion Books, 2008
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 the have plans, too...Those darn squirrels!
* Old Man Fookwire is a grumpy old man. He loves feeding the birds from his homemade birdfeeders. But the squirrels like the birdfeeders too. And they're very smart. Old Man Fookwire gets very upset with them....but there's a surprise twist at the end. We see squirrels running all over our yard. This book makes you think, are they really that smart?! Overall this was an okay read with some humorous illustrations.
