      There was a lot of humor in this book!
      Birds that are very clever (rooks)
      “they unhook the peanut despenser so it plunges to cascacade its contens like…
      a gaming machine with a winning line.”
      Scarecrow: ” The rooks look at it in the manner of window-shoppers….”
      “…the wood pigeons merely find it a useful place to rest.”
      There are many literary references in the book also…Dickens, Chaucer etc.
      Great ‘slow-down’ read!
