Ol' Mama SquirrelDavid Ezra Stein, author of the Caldecott Honored Interrupting Chicken, has a new book, Ol’ Mama Squirrel, coming out on March 21, 2013. The popularity of squirrels is at a steady level at the moment, somewhere below foxes and owls in the woodland realm, but potentially poised for a breakout. Squirrels will only become more interesting with this release which follows a mother squirrel who needs to protect her babies and their food when a new visitor appears in the woods. Normally a book like this wouldn’t necessarilly intrigue me, but Interrupting Chicken was pretty funny.

Ol’ Mama Squirrel will be released on Thursday, March 21, 2013
