A Squirrel’s Tail is the story of a determined New York City subway rat that takes lessons on ‘How To Become A Squirrel’ from a lazy, ornery Central Park dog. This adventure about friendship and loyalty demonstrates to young readers that everyone’s unique qualities should be embraced and celebrated, and shows the disastrous results that can occur when we try to be someone we’re not.


Dedicated to Greg, Peter & Alvin
