I am really not the kind of girl to go "SQUEEEE," over a tiny, cute, fuzzy little mammal, but dang it, SQUEEEE!!!!! This little chipmunk is the cutest little creature I think I have ever seen! What's more, he won the affections of my friends Pam and Lili, and he had my niece and nephew giggling over his cute expressions and busy antics. He is just too cute to pass up!

Ok. Barf. Onward.

The photographs that illustrate this book are really quite remarkable, and do leave you wondering how in the worl

The photography in this book is just awesome! You can see some of the interior pages at Ms. Miller’s website. Anyway, I love the idea of this book!

Plus she has made a cute story to go with the pictures. Kids can read along to learn about Chippy’s day and all he does and even some dangers he faces! Kids will love ...more

I've spent the summer watching the abundance of chipmunks dashing around my own back yard [must be at least 8 of them:], facing off against the hoard of grey and red squirrels for the sunflower seeds we put out, and listening to their "barking" wars as ...more
Children and nature lovers alike will be captivated by this photo-essay of Chippy Chipmunk. Author/photographer Kathy Miller has compiled dozens of brilliant close-up photographs from her own garden as she chronicles the little critter's daily challenges.
