Those Darn Squirrels Fly South by Adam Rubin


Those Darn Squirrels Fly South by Adam Rubin

Old Man Fookwire's birds migrate south for the winter, and the squirrels decide to follow. They devise an ingenious plan to fly to a warm and beautiful beach with many new plants to snack on and many new birds to see. Though he would never admit it, Old Man Fookwire misses his furry friends. He joins them down south, paints the local birds, and succumbs to sunburn - so the squirrels have to drive his car back home.


Visual slapstick and a deadpan text combine with trademark Fookwire expressions to make this third Darn Squirrels outing a winner . . . Hysterical--again. Kirkus, starred review Rubin conveys the complexities of a testy relationship with flair. Publishers Weekly Like the previous volumes, Rubin and Salmieri's third Fookwire-squirrel saga is rich in clever language and unexpectedly humorous flourishes. New York Times online review This story doesn't disappoint. School Library Journal
