Read full description of the books:
Since this is Squirrel Appreciation Day . . .
(Yes - it's a REAL THING. Did you think I could make up something as bizarre as that?)
I feel I must object to this author's choice of the noble furry-tailed rodent to play the part of a whiny, petulant brat in her otherwise enjoyable book.
The star of this story is Melvin, a somewhat rotund squirrel who throws massive tantrums whenever things don't go his way.
Over the years, I've come to know many, many squirrels and let me tell you, they are NOT cantankerous. Would they be happier if I filled the bird feeders with premium sunflower seeds and tantalizing suet cakes? Sure. Will they throw tantrums if I put out cheap, crappy seed instead? Never! They will happily eat whatever is available. And when I run raving from the garage, waving a broom to chase them away, do they get mad and stamp their little squirrel feet? Nope. They simply climb a tree and wait until I'm inside again before resuming their feast. You see what I mean? Squirrels have got to be the most GRATEFUL critters on the planet!
Luckily, Melvin, the contentious squirrel in this book, learns that the same rules apply to all and that he must compromise and accept what he gets. (Oh, Melvin . . . you obviously have NO future in politics, so study something like Advanced Nut Storage Techniques or Ways to Successfully Cross a Road, instead.)
So, really. Ms. Gassman, couldn't you have picked a more persnickety creature for your story, say, a chihuahua or a groundhog? (There's a grouchy animal for you! Cursing us with six more weeks of winter just because we woke it up early one day!) Nuts to you, Julie!
And to all you squirrels out there,
NUTS to you, as well!
