The Adventures of Chatterer the Red Squirrel

Thornton W. Burgess

Book Overview: 

Chatterer the Red Squirrel finds himself in trouble again and is forced to abandon his old home. As the search for a new home begins, Chatterer's curiosity gets the better of him and a moment of carelessness causes him to stumble into a far different home than he ever imagined. This book is Thornton W. Burgess at his best as he captures the personalities and behaviors of the animals in the Green Forest delightfully well and tells a story of mischievousness and unexpected friendship.

He had often made as long a jump as this and thought nothing of it, but now he was so tired that the distance looked twice as great as it really was.

His hands just touched the tip of the nearest branch of the other tree. He tried his very best to hold on, but he couldn't. Then down, down, down he fell.

In spite of living in Cape Cod for about 9 years, I'd never read any of the original Thornton W. Burgess books. I believe I read some picturebook versions of Peter Rabbit as a kid, but those were adaptations.

This exceeded expectations. The story begins in the middle of the action, with Chatterer bei

I read this to my oldest daughter almost 5 years ago (when she was 5yrs old), but thought it high time to read it again to all my children.
