Tom is on the hunt for a tasty morning treat when he spies a flip-flapping, fluttery bird just there for the taking. Hello, breakfast! But little Tweet with his big black button eyes is too skinny to eat. Tom is determined to not get involved, but he can’t just leave Tweet there . . . frightened, unhappy, alone. Consarn it! It’s just Tom’s luck to get stuck with a Tweet!
“Totally tweet-rific. . . . Esbaum’s tweet tale will have listeners in stitches (especially the wormy bits), and Santat’s Photoshopped cartoon illustrations of bulky Tom and the goggle-eyed tweets are as expressive as they are goofy.” —Kirkus Reviews
