A Really Super Book about Squirrels

A Really Super Book about Squirrels Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Graham Taylor was sitting in his kitchen one morning, contemplating the universe over a bowl of cold cereal, when he noticed a squirrel outside the window--the same squirrel he'd seen countless times before. How nice it would be, he thought, if that squirrel could be my friend. So he jotted down a few lines to that effect and displayed his creative endeavor on the fridge, which is where his friend Graham Roumieu spotted it. Roumieu illustrated these meandering thoughts and urged Taylor to do more. The rest, as they say, is history. A Really Super Book About Squirrels is a quirky little humor book that combines art and words into a collection that will appeal to both the squirrel lovers and squirrel haters among us. It's a tongue-in-cheek tribute to that backyard rodent that we really want to like.

About the Author

Author and squirrel lover Graham Taylor grew up in Hamilton, Ontario, and graduated with a degree in media arts from Sheridan College. He is currently working in the television industry and is constantly on the lookout for squirrels around his home in Toronto. Illustrator Graham Roumieu is from Smithers, British Columbia, and also graduated from Sheridan College. He's a freelance artist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Post, National Post Business, Toronto Life, and Explore magazine. He lives with his wife in Toronto.

Little is known about "Jimmy the Squirrel" as he is a squirrel and is unable to talk. Through a series of squeaks and chirps he seemed to express that he is excited about having a book written about him and he urges kids to stay in school.
