The Secret Life of Squirrels by Nancy Rose
This enchanting book came out of the website by the same name, and is such fun. Mr. Peanuts leads and active life, barbecuing, playing piano, and reading, but sometimes gets lonely. In this book he invites his cousin to come for a visit, sending him a letter.
When he knows his cousin will be coming he prepares by cleaning house, doing laundry and making a cake.
Once his cousin arrives the two enjoy a meal to start, then tour around, play some games, go on a picnic, and enjoy a campfire evening. Mr. Peanuts determines that having a friend is a good thing.
The author also includes a useful section on photographing wildlife, explaining in simple terms photography techniques, safety tips, and thoughts about respecting animals. There is also a short interview with the author about how she came to write this book.
Unique and interesting.
