Is there room for someone else in Fox and Squirrel's friendship?

Fox and Squirrel are the best of friends. But when Yellow Bird comes along, he and Squirrel frolic high up in the treetops where Fox can't reach. Fox feels like Squirrel doesn't need him anymore. Can Squirrel help Fox see that there's room in their friendship for another?

Ruth Ohi delivers another irresistible story about the adventures of two lovable friends, told through the same spare text and expressive watercolour illustrations as Fox and Squirrel. The simple text and joyful art together deliver a heart warming tale with a subtle but profound message about the strengths of friendship, loyalty, and acceptance.
