K-Gr 2–The Unlimited Squirrels are back with a new book full of humorous vignettes in a comic-style format that will induce an unlimited amount of laughs from readers. Zoom Squirrel and his supportive friends are discussing the important topic of feelings. The squirrels are showcasing a variety of emotions from disappointed to frustrated, and the most important: love. Zoomy is surprised to find that some of these new feelings are not what was expected. Sprinkled within the main story line, or the “Big Story,” are scenes between characters that are full of wordplay designed to appeal to readers of a variety of ages. “Acorn-y” jokes also grab the attention of emergent readers. The graphic novel style format and book design works to build reading skills by clearly laying out text in a wide array of sizes and colors. This delightful book is sure to have lasting appeal for young readers and fans of the author’s “Elephant & Piggie” series.
VERDICT A masterly blending of relevant childhood themes with nuanced humor that will make both kids and their grown-ups giggle.
