Reviews

"Safe, accessible and laced with gentle philosophizing, this has an edge of poetry that gives it colourful tone and texture."--Toronto Star
"The gripping tale of . . . squirrels who embrace adventure in order to rescue one of their own. . . . Generously illustrated with the author's black-and-white drawings, this is a lively story filled with humour and surprising bits of wisdom."--Montreal Gazette
"An amazing adventure story full of humor, desperation and hope, executed perfectly. . . . A perfect read for kids 5 to 15."--Newsday/Kidsday
"Thoughtful, and amusing . . . Hand this lively tale to both the nature-loving kids and the animal fantasy lovers."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"[An] entertaining story of friendship and adventure...funny and exuberant."--Kirkus Reviews
"A lovely and insightful creation."--Booklist (starred review)
"[A] tall tale featuring three courageous squirrels. . . . Perkins's twisting-turning narrative provides plenty of fun; along with their impulsiveness, her characters have warm hearts and generous spirits. Readers . . . will relish the squirrels' adventures, as well as Perkins's laugh-aloud illustrations and equally witty footnotes."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Perkins uses language like the best toy ever. ...The book begs to be read aloud, except that you'd miss the wacky digressions, the goofy footnotes, and the black-and-white illustrations with their built-in micro-plots. Another completely original and exceptional package from Perkins."--Horn Book (starred review)
"Perkins elucidates delightfully...This is a small story made larger by the ways readers can enjoy Perkins's whimsical conception of squirrel civilization. Some deeper themes may prompt readers to question their interactions with the natural world."--School Library Journal (starred review)
