As Old Man Fookwire's birds prepare to migrate south for the winter, the squirrels decide to follow. The birds and squirrels' sunny, beachy destination is a paradise, so warm and beautiful that it might even entice the grumpiest old man in existence to pay a visit as well.
Old Man Fookwire's one pleasure in life is painting the birds in his backyard. When fall arrives and the birds fly south, Fookwire is desolate. The squirrels are curious: Where are the birds going, and what do they do once they get there? With their usual ingenuity and engineering skills, the squirrels devise a way to follow the birds to their destination, a tropical paradise.A wonderful time is had by all—all but grumpy Old Man Fookwire, alone at home. But the squirrels have a solution for that, too. Readers will revel in this third off-the-wall comedy featuring Old Man Fookwire, a lot of birds, and those darn squirrels.
