Jim the Lumberjack spends his days cutting down trees and burning brush, until his activities disrupt the forest and take away homes from the creatures that reside there. As a result, Jim opens his beard to the displaced animals, but their new home in his beard disrupts his life completely. Jim has to make it right, so he and his animal buddies can live in harmony. This is a delightful story about animals, pancakes, the importance of nature conservation and being ecofriendly as well as practicing proper beard maintenance.
