Product Details


★ “Cartooned illustrations by Andriani (Dudley’s Day at Home) are loads of fun, capturing this backyard battle of wills from every angle. The real star, however, is the luscious text by Barrett (Babymoon), redolent with rousing G-rated expletives and rollicking proclamations that feel almost Shakespearean.”Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
★ “A compelling and generous addition to picture book collections that can inspire young naturalists and builders, and create a well of empathy in storytimes.”School Library Journal, Starred Review
“Any animal-lover will enjoy this creative, STEM powered book and appreciate its appended ‘Squirrelly Facts.’ . . . Dynamic illustrations capture the ingenuity of Pearl’s complex designs and the playfulness of the squirrel to deliver a story kids will go nuts for.”Booklist

“Barrett’s high-energy narrative is filled with action verbs that give it a pleasingly crisp forward movement while Andriani’s illustrations are just as pleasingly varied in their presentation and keep up perfectly with the text. . . . Determination and perseverance—both girl’s and squirrel’s—are celebrated.”—Kirkus Reviews
