Description
This isn't the first Those Darn Squirrels book from Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri, and we certainly hope it won't be their last. Old Man Fookwire is as cranky as ever, enduring the squirrels' pranks and predations all winter long. But spring not only brings the return of his beloved birds, it also brings new neighbors: sweet Little Old Lady Hu and her cat Muffins, a big orange bully who terrifies the birds and gives the squirrels noogies and wet willies. Rubin and Salmieri (also the creators of Dragons Love Tacos) ratchet up the humor for readers 5 to 9 as the squirrels come up with a clever plan that even earns Fookwire's grudging admiration—and you may never forget the image of several unfortunate squirrels getting wedgies from Muffins.

"This time, Mr. Fookwire, his beloved backyard birds, and his relentlessly clever squirrel frenemies are united against a new neighbor and common enemy.... The squirrels summon their ingenuity ... and concoct a revenge scheme that has Muffins retreating indoors permanently, thus insinuating themselves into Mr. Fookwire's grumpy affections once more. Rubin's sly ironies and Salmieri's spare but deeply goofy aesthetic is child-friendly urbanity at its best. And those squirrels! Impish, beady-eyed, and never individuated, they steal the spotlight in every scene."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
