Description

In The Great Squirrel Burglar, authors Mary Ellen Graham Wehrli and J. Lawrence Graham present us with an engaging story and charming illustrations for children, parents, and grandparents that teach the importance of multigenerational relationships and the worthy (and delightful!) lessons we learn from family.

Alongside the “squirrely” characters of Grandpa Earl—aka the legendary Great Squirrel Burglar—and his “grandkit” Jack Boy, children and their families will go on a delightful journey to help Grandpa Earl solve the mystery of where he’s hidden his missing nuts and acorns. Joining Earl and his grandson are Carl the Cardinal, the fabulous feline Catrina, Spot the hound dog, Babbit the Rabbit, and more!

This captivating cast of wildlife friends adds color and fun to The Great Squirrel Burglar, which teaches children about the joy (and excitement!) that older generations can add to their families.

Thank you, Greenleaf Book Group, for the advance reading copy.

I find this story so cute! But it also helps in understanding what squirrels do. There are many characters mentioned in the book. However, the main focus is on the Grandpa and his Jack boy. I feel the other characters are given equal importance too.

I find the illustrations good. However, it would be really nice if the colours are more distinct.

Such a lively read overall.

What a great book! I am so fortunate that I grew up with three generations of family, as have my children and grandchildren. This book reinforces the importance of intergenerational relationships and the lessons we can learn if we only take the time. It also shares the importance of friendship with others of different backgrounds and ages. The nostalgic illustrations were really cute. This Nana and her grandkids loved it!

What a cute children’s book was and my 2nd grade grandchild loved it!! It was very entertaining and the squirrel in the book is the favorite character, of course. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book for an honest review. Grand-daughter approves!
