The birdlike kweeks are starving because their island does not have enough ploppolop fruit trees to feed them all, until Quentin makes an amazing discovery.

For the flightless birds on the island of Kookatumdee, the ploppa tree is their only source of food. When Jed grabs more than his share of ploppolop, little Quentin goes to battle against the oversized bully. Full color.

Quentin, a little kweek, takes a stand against big kweek Jed, who has been greedily hogging the delectable ploppolops fruit on the jungle island of Kookatumdee. Quentin rallies his little fellow kweeks for support, but faces his adversary alone, and saves the day for his friends.

"The story's ending is a real treat. Colorful pictures add mirth to the swift verses."—Publishers Weekly
