Those Darn Squirrels by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri

The only thing that makes cranky Old Man Fookwire happy is painting pictures of the birds in his backyard. To keep them from migrating south in the winter, he puts up extravagant bird feeders, which pesky squirrels find and ravage. The story takes you through this rising conflict, which ends in a pretty hilarious solution by the clever squirrels. This is one of our 3-year-olds' favorites – they love shaking their fists and saying in an exasperated old-man voice: "Those darn squirrels." Fun!
