Summary, etc.:
"Watch out on your next walk through the forest, because you just might encounter a real rapscallion in the form of a tiny bird! In this hilarious tale, Chickadee recounts how he went from a normal bird 'childhood' to a daring life of crime. One cold, snowy morning, shivering and hungry, he discovers a vault of gold -- and steals from it! His natural colouring resembling a mask helps him blend in as he makes his rounds of the forest. It's an exciting life, with hawks to fend off and treasure to hide all over the forest... but is it as glamorous as it appears? It can get pretty lonely being a fearsome marauder, and it might be nice to have a friend. When Chickadee is spotted one day, he learns that stealing gold may be fun, but making friends is easier than he thinks."-- Provided by publisher.
