"The simply written narration is humourously deadpan in its delivery: “Squirrel landed in a tree. Fox did not.” ...This gentle story of friendships old and new will spark reflection and discussion." (see full review here)
Is there room for someone else in Fox and Squirrel's friendship? Fox and Squirrel are the best of friends. But when Yellow Bird comes along, he and Squirrel frolic high up in the treetops where Fox can't reach. Fox feels like Squirrel doesn't need him anymore. Can Squirrel help Fox see that there's room in their friendship for another?
The simple text and joyful art together deliver a heartwarming tale with a subtle but profound message about the strengths of friendship, loyalty, and acceptance.
