A big friendship triumphs over small differences in this irresistible story from the author and illustrator of Chicken, Pig, Cow!

When Fox and Squirrel get together, Squirrel can only see their differences. Squirrel is small and Fox is big; Squirrel lives in a nest and Fox in a burrow; Squirrel likes the day and Fox, the night. But as their friendship grows, Fox gently points out that their differences are good, and more than that, they have many things in common too. Even Squirrel begins to see that maybe they are not so different after all!

This irresistible story about the adventures of two lovable friends is told through expressive watercolour illustrations full of energy, humour, and warmth. The simple text and joyful art deliver a heartwarming tale with a subtle but profound message about friendship, acceptance, and working together.

Praise for Ruth Ohi:

"A tender tale for the very small told via generous amounts of vibrant watercolour daubed over double pages and a perfect economy of words." -The Globe and Mail (for Chicken, Pig, Cow on the Move)

"Profound in its simplicity, this story has it all: a dab of magic, a spirit of adventure, suspense, resolution and a comforting and satisfying end." -Canadian Children''s Book News (for Chicken, Pig, Cow)
