Those Darn Squirrels and the Cat Next Door by Adam Rubin - ESSENTIAL

Rubin, Adam. Those Darn Squirrels and the Cat Next Door, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri.  Clarion Books, 2011. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK.  

Old Man Fookwire enjoyed a peaceful life "on the edge of the forest just outside town".  For the longest time, the bane of his existence were "those darn squirrels".  

That is, until a woman moved in across the stream, and she brought her can Muffins with her.  Muffins was a troublemaker whose presence changed the balance of the forest.  I really enjoyed this book because it is funny and fun to read, the characters and the book have great personality, and the illustrations are excellent.
