Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4—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. "Old Man Fookwire was so old that when he sneezed, dust came out. He was also a grump. He hated pie. He hated puppies. The only thing he liked was birds." This verbal introduction to the main character is enhanced with paintings—reminiscent of some of the best European children's book illustrations—of an exaggeratedly skinny, flannel-shirted caricature with a long neck, long nose, oversized glasses, and protruding Adam's apple. He never smiles, even when he's painting pictures of the birds that visit his yard every summer. In an attempt to keep the birds around when autumn arrives, he builds wonderful birdfeeders. They do indeed attract the birds—but they also catch the eye of the squirrels. The cheerful, brilliant, and adorable creatures are shown using pulleys, weights, and remarkable cooperative planning to foil Fookwire and raid the feeders. The old man fights back. But the squirrels, still smiling and hopeful, stay up all night for a planning meeting and devise a daring escapade that relies heavily on their deep understanding of physics and their willingness to be launched through the air. 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.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

3.0 out of 5 stars Get “Secret Pizza Party” (by the same author) instead.
By JR on December 1, 2020
We love the book, “Secret Pizza Party” by the same author, so we thought we would get this book too. I really wanted to love this book as well, but I don’t.

The story is okay, but two things completely distract from the story that I just can’t seem to get past.

1.) The main character’s name is Mr. Fookwire. I don’t know if I am pronouncing it right but two of my kids took a double take when I said that as they thought I was about to say a “bad word.” Of all the names to use in a children’s book, not the best choice in my opinion.
2.) If squirrels are going to be sitting around drinking cherry cola and eating salt-and-vinegar chips... why in the world would they even want to get their hands on bird seed?!?!

In m opinion, skip this book and get “Secret Pizza Party” instead.
