Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing photos This is a cute story about a squirrel having a friend visit. From what I can understand, the author set up little home made photo sets, and waited for a squirrel to come and get photographed. These photos are used to illustrate the story. Well done.

Editorial Reviews

"The story is delightfully written, emphasizing the theme that having a friend makes everything more fun. The illustrations, however, steal the show ... It should prove to be a very popular addition to an elementary school library collection and is highly recommended for young readers." --Resource Links"What a fantastic book!" --Canadian Materials, Highly Recommended"Rose's photos of squirrels doing human things are pretty hilarious, and she's created a fun narrative from them all. But it's most impressive when you look in the back of the book and learn how Rose set up these photos in her own backyard (mostly by hiding nuts in her set-pieces)." --Pickle Me This
