The Squirrel's Birthday and Other Parties, by Toon Tellegen. Illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg
This is a lovely collection of short, sweet, interconnected animal stories, reminiscent of the Winnie-the-Pooh stories by A. A. Milne. Perfect for bedtime read-alouds, the stories are gentle, thoughtful and comforting--each one satisfying, with emotional depth. The lovely illustrations perfectly complement the stories with their beauty and innocence. This collection will be a classic. 2009.
