Squirrel In The House by Vivian VandeVelde - ADVISABLE

VandeVelde, Vivian Squirrel In The House 80 pages.  Holiday House, 2016.  $15.95.  Content:  G Language: G Mature Content: G

Twitch the Squirrel enjoys living outside until he’s realized that he’s eaten up all of the food he’s stored for the winter and he’s very cold.   So he decides to pay his friend Cuddles the dog a visit, whose human family is having a holiday celebration.  When Squirrel enters the house he creates lots of chaos and no one notices one of the little boys leaving the house.  When the young boy gets stranded in the snow it is up to Squirrel and Cuddles to save him. 

This story is narrated by Squirrel, giving the reader an animal’s humorous perspective on things.  This book is a follow-up to Vande’s 8 Class Pets + 1 Squirrel ÷ 1 Dog = Chaos, but is able to be read as a stand-alone.  This is a fun, humorous read which my eight- year-old son enjoyed very much.
