Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The touching story of an unusual friendship, from one of today's most masterful children's book writers. Now repackaged with an updated look and feel.

You could call it unusual. Strange in fact. Most dogs chase squirrels. But not Kona. He's friends with a squirrel. A squirrel named Stumpy. Kona thinks Stumpy's the best thing since chocolate doggie treats.

So when a dangerous ice storm hits Gooseberry Park, all Kona can think about is Stumpy — and her newborn babies. Can they survive in the freezing cold? Kona wants to help. But the journey to Gooseberry Park is icy and treacherous. It will be a difficult, risky trip. But sometimes, a dog will risk it all — for a best friend.

Synopsis:

A terrible ice storm sends the residents of Gooseberry Park scrambling. Kona, the chocolate Labrador, is determined to find his good friend Stumpy the squirrel, whose babies are all alone. "Readers will relish every moment of this impeccably paced fantasy".--"Publishers Weekly", starred review. An IRA Teacher's Choice.
