”I love the friendship that fox and squirrel have in spite of their differences. They learn valuable lessons about life in a fun and relatable text with an underlying theme of acceptance and caring for one another. The beautiful illustrations make these memorable friends come alive!” -Sue Saunderson of Blue Heron Books
When a baby bat drops in (literally, straight out of the sky), Fox is immediately taken with this soft, sweet creature and rushes to take care of it. Squirrel is less sure this is a welcome intrusion. The new squeaky stranger can't keep up with all their favourite activities and doesn't seem to even realize how exciting Squirrel is. Can Fox and Squirrel come together to figure out what Squeak needs?
