A little bird just wants some peace and quiet--but he's about to get a whole lot more than he bargained for in this clever picture book debut, in the tradition of Jon Klassen's "I Want My Hat Back."
It's a beautiful, sunny day in the swamp when a little yellow bird settles down on a rock--only to be interrupted as first a heron, then a frog, then a turtle ask to sit on the rock with him. As each animal says "pardon me," the little bird's replies get grumpier:
""I suppose I can't stop you.""
""It's already crowded, don't you think?""
""Sure, the entire swamp's here already. Why shouldn't you be, too?""
When a fox comes by, the bird finally loses his cool. But it just so happens that fox showed up for a reason, and the little bird's outburst leads to a surprise ending you'll want to read again and again.
