Tom’s Tweet

Written by Jill Esbaum, Illustrated by Dan Santat
Knopf Books for Young Readers (2011)

Tom is on the hunt for a tasty morning treat when he spies a flip-flapping, fluttery bird there for the taking. Hello, breakfast! But dagnabbit! The tweet is too skinny to eat. Tom doesn’t want to get involved, but why does the little thing have to look so frightened … unhappy … alone? Consarn it! Just Tom’s luck to get stuck with a tweet.
