PreS-Gr 1—When Mr. Peanuts the squirrel receives an invitation to visit for Christmas from his cousin, he immediately packs his suitcase with plenty of hand-knitted Christmas sweaters, hops in his convertible, and zooms through the snow to Cousin Squirrel's house. The two squirrels enjoy a hazelnut latte, go sledding, and open presents—peanuts, of course. What raises this book above the pedestrian are the more than 25 carefully composed photographs, depicting real squirrels and tiny, squirrel-size props, many of them hand-made (teeny knit sweaters, teeny snowshoes made of twigs). VERDICT The sharply focused, detailed photos of a frisky-tailed, big-eyed squirrel nosing curiously about adorably small objects will captivate kids, even if the text is nothing special.—Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
Praise for Merry Christmas, Squirrels!:
"The whimsical details of the world Rose has created for her squirrels (a gingerbread train, nut-themed picture books for them to read before a roaring fire) are as amusing as in the previous book."―Publishers Weekly

Ordinary Christmas activities, but what makes this so magical and special are the real life photos of squirrels doing the activities! I was delighted to see Mr. Peanuts using a tiny snowblower to clear a path, riding a tiny car to drive to his cousin's, decorating the tree, reading tiny books, and opening presents. The photos are amazing and way better than any illustrations for the story could be. My kids will love it. The book also includes 6 tear out squirrel gift tags, which are so cute.
Also in the book is the story of how the author came up with the book idea, based on squirrels in her Canada backyard. It also tells how she creates her own props for the squirrels and how she watches them from afar to photograph them and prompts them to interact with the props by hiding peanuts in the props. This is such a clever book and a cool addition to our Christmas collection!
