Editorial Reviews

Review

"[Kemper] shares a series of charming personal essays that chronicle both her professional and personal life, from being a child to having one. Rather than write a tell-all, Kemper gently lifts the veil on specific elements of her life, revealing “tidbits from [her] past” and “morsels of the present.”"
Boston Globe

"Ellie Kemper's debut [memoir], My Squirrel Days, is exactly what you would expect from the comedian. It's rich in personality, teeming with energy and full of laugh-out-loud moments. Kemper is a natural storyteller."
Associated Press

"Kemper reveals herself to be ... the veritable kindred spirit of her alter egos ... charming.
Washington Post

"[Kemper] is famously nice, polite and upbeat ... The book is a collection of more than two dozen short essays, assembled more or less chronologically, about certain incidents in her life. Taken collectively, they reveal her personality, history and character without becoming bogged down in specifics."
St. Louis Dispatch

"In her book, Kemper dives fully into each role—as actor, comedian, writer, and also wife and new mom—with an electric dedication by which one learns to reframe the picture, and if not exactly become a glass-half-full sort of person, at least become able to appreciate them."
Vogue.com

"Just when we thought we couldn’t love her more, Kemper released her first memoir, My Squirrel Days, a hilarious chronicle of the redhead’s journey from childhood to Hollywood. Kemper brings readers into her early days as a wannabe squirrel whisperer, her career as a field-hockey-dropout-turned-improviser at Princeton, her uncanny experience serving as an actual bridesmaid while filming Bridesmaids and much more."
Parade.com

"Kemper, 38, is hilariously self-deprecating while maintaining a refreshingly entertaining and positive outlook throughout the book. It's a breezy read that has actual laugh-out-loud moments thanks in part to her nonchalantly sarcastic commentary."
USA Today

"One book we’re not passing on: Kemper’s new collection of essays, My Squirrel Days. In it, the St. Louis native recounts her life growing up here—i.e., communing with an overweight squirrel outside her tree house, hence the title—as well as how she came to play Erin Hannon on NBC’s hit The Office and then Kimmy."
St. Louis Magazine

"Kemper is a joy to follow ... She’s always poking fun at herself, but bravely open enough to let us all in on the joke."
TheAVClub.com

"The Office and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star delivers a series of essays on topics ranging from growing up in St. Louis obsessed with squirrels to becoming a mother and learning how to discreetly change diapers."
TIME.com

"In My Squirrel Days, Kemper her journey from her Midwestern childhood in suburban St. Louis to her breakout years in the comedy scene in Hollywood. Like so many other celebrity memoirists, Kemper weaves pop-culture references with her own personal stories and behind-the-scenes tales from life on the small screen. But Kemper's book is different from other celeb memoirs in one critical respect: She dedicated an entire essay to examining her complicated childhood friendship with a wild squirrel she named Natalie. Yeah, this is definitely different from anything you've read before."
Bustle

"Recalling stories from different points in her life, from her childhood to moving to Los Angeles, her charm and warmth are on full display. Be prepared to fall even more in love with Kemper."
PopSugar

"If you’ve ever wanted to sit down and have a conversation with Ellie Kemper, reading her hilarious collection of essays about her life and career is basically the same thing ... Ellie’s stories will make you pee your pants with laughter, which may or may not be something she has some experience with herself."
Hello Giggles

"Actress Kemper's memoir in essays gives fans a taste of what it was like growing up Ellie ... Kemper solidifies her upbeat and humble persona with her first book."
Booklist

"Uproarious ... Kemper proves that good comedy starts with good writing ... an entertaining celebrity memoir."
Kirkus

"Engaging and refreshing ... She is an entertaining writer, and her tales ... will give readers an enticing glimpse of her happy-go-lucky attitude. This is a fun, breezy, and enjoyable volume."
Publishers Weekly

"A pleasure. Ellie Kemper is the kind of stable, intelligent, funny, healthy woman that usually only exists in yogurt commercials. But she's real and she's all ours!"
 —Tina Fey

"Ellie is a hilarious and talented writer, although we'll never know how much of this book the squirrel wrote."
—Mindy Kaling

"This is a thoroughly charming book."
—Dave Eggers
