Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stumpy Squirrel has just settled into a new nest in a magnificent pin oak in Gooseberry Park. Its the perfect spot for her babies to be born! When they arrive healthy and strong, Stumpys three good friends--a Labrador retriever, a wise hermit crab, and a bat who eats Chinese food--are thrilled. But after a terrible ice storm destroys the pin oak, Stumpy disappears. It takes a special combination of courage, humor, and tenacity for Stumpys friends to rescue her babies and bring her home again. “A tender tale delivered by a sure hand.”--Kirkus Reviews “Readers will relish every moment of this impeccably paced fantasy and its winning depictions of the unique perspectives and quandaries of four unlikely companions.”--Publishers Weekly
