One stormy evening, when Jamie is staying with his Grandfather, a strange bird walks in through the gate. It is wet cold and featherless and immediately invited into the warm house. They name the bird Thomas and he soon makes himself very much at home. But having a bird in the house can be a bit messy and disruptive and so Jamie and Grandfather hatch a plan to give Thomas a wonderful surprise. Finally, however, it is Thomas who provides the biggest surprise of all!

reSchool-Grade 2-A simple, loving story of the special bond between a child and his grandfather. On a dark, stormy evening, there is a rap on Grandpa's door, and Jamie opens it to find a featherless bird. They bring the animal in out of the cold, warm him with dry towels, and name him Thomas. For a while, he lives in the house, but for obvious reasons, Grandpa and Jamie build Thomas a home of his own. Soon after, Jamie is in for a big surprise: Thomas has laid an egg, and the chicken becomes Thomasina. The small pen and colored-pencil illustrations are bright and cheerful. A slight, gentle tale, pleasantly told.
