Popular photographs become a cozy, quirky picture book in the vein of Stranger in the Woods and Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. Featuring candid photographs of wild squirrels in handcrafted, homemade miniature settings, this irresistible book is sure to surprise and delight readers and animal lovers of every age! You may think you know what squirrels do all day... but Mr. Peanuts is no ordinary squirrel. Instead of climbing trees, he plays the piano. ("Moonlight Sonutta" is his favourite.) Instead of scurrying through the woods, he reads books (such as A Tail of Two Cities). But everything is more fun with company, so Mr. Peanuts writes a letter to Cousin Squirrel and invites him for a visit! This sleeper hit picture book is now available in a toddler-friendly board book format.
