For my son who is 13months this book is beyond his level and he won't sit still for it, but I really have no doubt that when he's a bit older, he will love it. I just crack up every time I read it! It's very funny and I find the characters easy to relate to. I think old man Fookwire is similar to many older men which makes it fun to read and see how he and the squirrels interact.

We love this book and its silliness; our son thinks the "furry little geniuses" are brilliant. A very entertaining story and amusing artwork.

An old man, who hates everything but birds, butts heads with a mischievous group of squirrels.This was very funny - the squirrels are outrageous, and S got quite a kick out of the story.

Old Man Fookwire is sick of the squirrels stealing his bird seed; he tries and tries to thwart them, but somehow they always get the seed! (The squirrels are geniuses.) Finally, the squirrels feel a little bad for Mr. Fookwire, and attempt to make up for their past misdeeds. Eventually Old Man Fookwire comes to appreciate the squirrels, even if they are theives...The drawings are a little grotesque, especially of Mr. Fookwire, ha ha. But the illustrations of the birds and the squirrels-dressed-as-birds are quite striking!The story is very cute; I like the redemptive good deed that the squirrels do for Old Man Fookwire - it's very sweet-natured.
