The irresistible cute story of Mr Peanuts, now in a board book edition

Mr Peanuts is an unusual squirrel. He likes to grill hot dogs on his tiny grill. He plays the piano beautifully. He likes to read (his favourite books are A Tail of Two Cities and Good Night, Nut). But once in a while he feels lonely. One day, he writes a letter to Cousin Squirrel to invite him to visit, and to his great joy, Cousin Squirrel agrees! They play chess and ride a wagon. Turns out Cousin Squirrel is an unusual squirrel, too, and Mr Peanuts realizes that having a friend makes everything twice as fun.

Editorial Review

"The story is delightfully written, emphasizing the theme that having a friend makes everything more fun. The illustrations, however, steal the show ... It should prove to be a very popular addition to an elementary school library collection and is highly recommended for young readers." --Resource Links

"What a fantastic book!" --Canadian Materials, Highly Recommended

"Rose's photos of squirrels doing human things are pretty hilarious, and she's created a fun narrative from them all. But it's most impressive when you look in the back of the book and learn how Rose set up these photos in her own backyard (mostly by hiding nuts in her set-pieces)." --Pickle Me This
