Elwood Bigfoot Wanted: Birdie Friends! by Jill Esbaum

Elwood Bigfoot is big, clumsy, loud...and lonely. It's hard for him to make friends, especially with the tiny, delicate birdies he loves so much. Each flash of their feathers, each chirp and cheerful song helps him feel less alone. But whenever a birdie swoops by, and Elwood hollers at it to stay, the scared creature flies away. He tries everything: sitting on a branch, having a housewarming party, even building an amusement park with snacks and pools. But nothing helps, until Elwood finally learns how to make his bird dreams come true.
