When Moose rubs his antlers against the tree where Squirrel built his nest, he sets off a chain of comic catastrophes. The tree falls and wakes Bear, who stumbles into Moose, who causes a truck to swerve. But then Squirrel jumps onto that truck and ends up in the city, all alone. Who will help him get home? A sweet story of friendship, generosity, and how one fun thing leads to another.
A silly story that unfolds through a sequence of a possible duality of events, such as, “When Squirrel is alone with no place to go, two things could happen. He is discovered by a talent scout, and becomes a star of stage and screen. OR…”. Cute illustrations.
