The Secret Life of Squirrels
The Secret Life of Squirrels | Nancy Rose
11 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
An irresistible photographic story featuring wild squirrels in homemade miniature domestic settings -- taking a bath, doing laundry, and barbecuing -- will surprise and amuse readers and animal lovers of all ages! Adorable squirrels as you've never seen them! You may think you know what squirrels do all day...but Mr. Peanuts is no ordinary squirrel. Instead of climbing tress, he plays the piano. ("Moonlight Sonutta" is his favorite.) Instead of scurrying through the woods, he reads books (such as A Tail of Two Cities). But everything is more fun with company, so Mr. Peanuts writes a letter to Cousin Squirrel and invites him for a visit! Featuring candid photographs of wild squirrels in handcrafted, homemade miniature settings, this irresistible book is sure to delight readers young and old!

Thank you so much for your gorgeous package @jenniferw88 ! I hope that you can all see it here....it was difficult to fit it all in to one picture!

There is a squirrel bag and a scarf, some socks, a cookie cutter, a bookmark, a magnet.... And the card is adorable too.

I know that you said you‘ve been collecting bits over the course of months and I really do appreciate your thoughtfulness - you‘re a wonderful friend to have!

SamanthaMarie That is SUCH a lovely and thoughtful package!!! 2mo

Who knew I was a squirrel 🐿

rretzler Me, too, apparently! 4mo
jchawkins I'm def a worm...I only keep the books I will come back to again and again. Mostly because I grew up with packrats whose need to hoarde was dangerous to our health and it scared the living daylight out of me. 😆 4mo
Bookjunkie57 @rretzler I have a feeling there are many of us here. 4mo

Bookjunkie57 @jchawkins sounds scary. Fortunately I only hoard books and pens. 📚🖋 4mo
jchawkins @Bookjunkie57 oh good! Yeah my parents hoarded food containers and coffee mugs, and would shove them into cabinets. You'd open the cabinets and these mugs and cookie tins and yogurt containers would come crashing down on your head 😵 4mo
rretzler @jchawkins My husband‘s parents became hoarders in their old age. There were paths through the boxes and stacks in their house to get to important places! And my grandmother horses pantyhose and shower caps in her bathroom cupboards! 4mo
rabbitprincess OMG @squirrelbrain 😂🐿 Great post, @Bookjunkie57 😄 (edited) 4mo
squirrelbrain @rabbitprincess 🤣🐿🤣🐿 I‘m not so much of a hoarder - apart from I hoard all of the squirrelly worrying thoughts in my brain! 4mo

@squirrelbrain look what I found at the grocery store this morning! I hadn't intended to buy any post-Easter chocolate but couldn't resist this 😂🐿

squirrelbrain 🤣 I do hope you‘re not seriously considering eating him though?! 😲 7mo
rabbitprincess @squirrelbrain I am more likely to eat him than to eat a chocolate bunny, let's put it that way... 😬😅😱 7mo
Cinfhen Hahah hahaha This above exchange is hilarious @squirrelbrain @rabbitprincess 😂😂😂😂🙌🏻💕 7mo

@squirrelbrain I found the most amazing socks last week and thought of you ♥️🐿

(And if you're wondering about the plaid shoes, those are my office flats, which I wear on days when I've worn boots to work. Glorified slippers, in essence. They usually clash violently with whatever socks I happen to be wearing 😂)

squirrelbrain ❤️ 🐿They are so cool and so cute! 🐿❤️ 9mo
rabbitprincess @squirrelbrain They're the Sock It to Me brand, in case you want your own 😉 9mo

My mother bought this book for me for Christmas 2014; ever since I was little, I've adored these weird little creatures, and my backyard is populated with a tribe that's particularly friendly. It's a super-cute kids' book, though, filled with great photography and a whole lot of charm. #thesecretlifeofsquirrels

THIS BOOK ROCKS! ❤❤ I'm super biased because squirrels are my favorite animal, but I thoroughly enjoyed every page of this. This book places squirrels in unusual situations, AND there's even a sequel! You'll love Mr. Peanuts and his daily routine!!! It's a silly, animal fantasy book. #ucflae3414sp17 http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20706309-the-secret-life-of-squirrels

DrSpalding You must then read Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watts! 3y
SimaraGauntlett Although I don't share your love of squirrels, I think this would be an entertaining read for children! 3y

My youngest and I laughed so hard reading this book. The pictures are really delightful. Nancy Rose has amazing patience. I wouldn't have the patience waiting for the squirrels to show up to the "shoot".

Lindy I love this book too. ❤️ 3y
ebookclassics We're going to look for the sequel. I hope there's one. 3y
