A tale told by a squirrel – that’s kind of nuts.

Toaff has questions; is he the only thoughtful squirrel in the world? Toaff’s four seasons of adventures around the farm with playful dogs, dangerous cats and enemy rodents are very engrossing.  Big storms, chain saws, injuries and migrations give the story movement; friendships give it warmth. Toaff’s story is realistic in that he lives a real squirrel’s life, but the tale also has some interesting elements like squirrel mythologies.  It’s an enjoyable coming of age story to curl up with.
