Chris Haughton's Shh! We Have a Plan

Shh! We Have a Plan inside page

Four goofy friends are out in the woods. They notice a bird, and they want to have it. The tinier had an idea, but the other three ignored him and moved ahead to catch the bird with a net. In all their attempts, they miserably fail at catching the bird. But the tiniest of them get that bird's attention, and a flock of them with a few crumbs of bread. But did they get the bird?
