As each lot of trees is cut down, a new animal explains that his/her home was cut down and so he would like the person responsible to re-house him/her. The lumberjack offers up his beard each time and the animals slowly accumulate in the beard, getting in the way of the lumberjack's every day activities - brushing teeth, eating etc.
My only hesitation in giving the story a full five stars is that the book is so very American; firstly, the use of the word Lumberjack vs. the UK woodcutter, and secondly, each morning the lumberjack eats a huge pile of fluffy American pancakes smothered in maple syrup for breakfast... Both slightly limit the child's connection to the story - My daughter kept asking me what a lumberjack was. She knows all about woodcutters!
