This colorful children's story starts out Merl the squirrel and he's the last one. He wishes for a nut to grow on the oak tree....
He is so hungry just eating leaves and grass and he meets a man sitting on the bench with a donut. Before he knew it the crumbs made a donut tree and everybody came to see it.
The acorns flew one day and spelled out a special word!
Some words are difficult to see because the background color is too near the color of the font. Also not able to click to magnify the pages.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
This tale continues through a few seasonal changes, and crowds of onlookers. The story really has no purpose other than to entertain children, and the artful illustrations certainly help in that regard. It is a cute story, and ideally suited for preschool aged children. I recommend this for kids up to perhaps first or second grade, at which time they should be reading it to themselves. They will appreciate the tale for its accompanying illustrations, which virtually tell the story themselves.
This book is written in rhyme. The illustrations by Adam Duff are some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen. Though some of the events in the story line are a bit far fetched, the story lessons are good ones. Older preschoolers and primary grade children will love this book.
Merl, the last of the squirrels, lives alone in a land devoid of trees. All the trees have been chopped down. Luckily, he makes a magical wish on a lone acorn & delights when a tree grows. But, Merl’s tree has no fruit or nuts on it. After a visit to the park, Merl is given a donut by a friendly man. Not exactly the kind of nut you’d think a squirrel would want, is it?
However, Merl discovers what I’ve known for decades- donuts are awesome! When crumbs fall all around, the tree begins to bloom. Like no oak tree before it, it grows donuts. When word spreads to other animals, Merl’s desolate world becomes over packed with visitors. Can Merl balance his new found food with the overpopulation around him?
Filled with fantastic art provided by Adam Duff, Julia Dweck provides us with the wholesome entertainment we’ve come to expect from her. She has an unbelievable talent to capture our hearts & minds through her writing. My kids adore her work & yours will too. In each story, she provides a strong lead character, like Merl, who has a will to survive, never gives up, & has a solid moral compass. I recommend her work highly.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.
This was the most adorable and heartfelt story and I fell in love with it. I loved the rhyming and the illustrations where just amazingly bright and very colorful!! This is a cute story that will put smiles on children's faces and make a great bedtime story that even the parents will enjoy!! Thank you, Julia Dweck, for this amazingly adorable and fun story!!!
