This book is superb ! Think Watership Down and this is the squirrel version. Not the sort of book I would have normally chosen to read, but I read it by recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it. It really was a page turner (or page clicker if you read it on your Kindle!). It's well written and extraordinarily well observed - the view of the world from a squirrel's perspective is ingenious. Without doubt, you will view squirrels quite differently after reading this. It's crying out for a film version. I am certainly going to read more from this author.

T. Kozumplik impressive that the author can make the idea of looking at the world from a different animal's perspective... I used to think maybe my dog gets bored of this walk, but then I realized that I believe that because I'm a visual creature and so the walk through the woods doesn't change much whereas for my dog the smell history is different every time.
