The Tale of Dickon and the Strawberries
by Arlee Petkau

Dickon is a young chickadee who loves to eat strawberries more than anything else. One day, when he tries to eat from a patch of strawberries that do not belong to him, he learns that being greedy can lead to trouble. Accompanied by beautiful watercolour illustrations, this is a charming story that shows readers the important lesson that contentment is better than self-indulgence.
