Outwitting Squirrels

Welcome to Book Review Friday!


This may be the wrong week to start this Book Review Friday! thing since I haven't read anything new. But, then again, when has a detail like that ever stopped me?


To simplify things, I've chosen a book that we can judge by it's cover.




Outwitting Squirrels: 101 Cunning Stratagems to Reduce Dramatically the Egregious Misappropriation of Seed from Your Birdfeeder by Squirrels by Bill Adler, Jr. (second edition - 1996)


I LOVE the title. Funny yet empowering. Since I didn't read the book (only took it's picture at a thrift store) I can't say with any authority anything good or bad about the writing. People on Amazon gave it four stars. Which makes me think if you need to dramatically reduce the egregious misappropriation of seed from your birdfeeder by squirrels this could be the book for you.


The illustration is perfect, wouldn't you say? The squirrel could only have looked more sinister if he'd been wearing a tiny Lone Ranger mask. The way he's rubbing his little hands together while he's cooking up a strategy to steal bird seed makes me shutter. The layout and color choices are a bit ill-advised but hey, it's a book about squirrels.


Now get back to work!

I'm having issues with the birds getting into my squirrel feed - did you see any books about that?
