Raves and Reviews

"Mr. Squirrel and the Moon is an imaginative children's picturebook with an adventure in the tall-tale style of folklore. When Mr. Squirrel suddenly discovers that the moon (a bright, yellow, disc-like thing) has fallen onto his tree, his imagination runs amok. What if the moon had been stolen? Would Mr. Squirrel be mistaken for the thief and sent to prison? More of Mr. Squirrel's animal friends get tangled up with the moon; how can they put it back in its proper place in the sky? The beautifully surreal artwork perfectly complements this whimsical, original fairy tale - especially the striking prison images from the animals' imaginations, as they dream what it would be like to while away one's hours behind bars!"
