Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Well-intentioned, overzealous Squirrel embarks on further misadventures with his friends in this follow-up to Squirrel's World (2007). Squirrel's hyperkinetic movements and chatter power this early reader's four chapters: 'Got to go. Got to go. Got to go, go, go!' he chimes as he zips off to find fun. When Mouse tells him that she's too busy sweeping out her tree stump to have fun, he makes a mess trying to help her with his bushy tail ('Sweep, sweep, sweep!'); she then agrees to join his search for fun, only to get stuck in the mud. Squirrel's stab at building a bridge across a pond with Turtle also has muddy results, and his attempt to help Rabbit leave a trail of pebbles to guide him home backfires. Gorbachev's earth-toned ink-and-watercolor illustrations amplify the story's buoyant humor and highlight the animals' personalities, from Squirrel's exuberance to Rabbit's cautiousness. Ample art and Squirrel's playfully repetitious speech tailor the story to emerging readers. True to life, there are some bumps in the road, but the feel-good ending cements this quartet's friendship. Ages 5 — 7. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Got to go, got to go, got to go, go, go! The energetic Squirrel is eager to make sure his friends have fun in four charming new (mis)adventures.

Squirrel is busy, busy, busy — and determined to have a fun day! Mouse has cleaning to do, but its nothing that Squirrels frenetically helpful sweeping wont take care of. Turtle may be too slow to run, run, run around the pond, but Squirrel has a rocky plan to help Turtle get across. And when Rabbit is reluctant to alter his grasseating routine, Squirrels comedic assistance makes for an unexpected adventure. Welcome back the funny, exhausting Squirrel and his ever-patient friends in a medley of stories perfectly suited for reading alone or reading aloud.
