Jed the squirrel has quite an adventurous tale to tell after escaping from a hawk's talons and surviving a long fall. Luckily, the scenario is seen from a distance by his friends and they come to look for him. They must find their way home and quickly, for they find humans are cutting the trees near the buzzpaths, their "highways" and their homes are in the way. Somehow, they must convince their friends and families to move quickly out of danger. This 259 page book is a good book for animal lovers, grades 3-5. ( )

A quirky tale about three squirrel friends who discover that their tree homes are being cut down and embark on efforts to spread the news. (Actually, the trees are being cleared from the path of a power line.) The author's humorous asides on squirrel culture come in the form of footnotes. ( )

Cute story! Love the illustrations by the author too. Favorite quotes from this book: " A good story makes a journey go by more quickly. A really good story makes you forget you are even on a journey (162)."

And the last line in the book, "Everyone has hidden gifts, don't they?" ( )

This was a typical adventure tale for young children. Along the way the squirrels make new friends and learn new things about themselves and life in general. It was cute. Good for elementary age kids. It was a quick read and not too hard vocabulary wise. ( )

How far would you go for a friend? In Nuts to You, the funny and moving new novel by Newbery Medalist Lynne Rae Perkins, two squirrels go very far indeed to save a friend who has been snatched up by a hawk. Nuts to You is short, funny, and surprising—an Incredible Journey with squirrels. It features black-and-white art by the author on every page and will appeal to fans of animal fantasies by Kate DiCamillo, Kathi Appelt, and Avi.

The squirrels Jed, TsTs, and Chai are the very best of friends. So when Jed is snatched up by a hawk and carried away to another realm, TsTs and Chai resolve to go after him. New communities are discovered, new friends are made, huge danger is encountered (both man-made and of the fox and bobcat variety) and mysteries are revealed. Nuts to You is wholly original, funny, lively, and thought-provoking. It is a deeply satisfying piece of storytelling about the power of stories to save the world; about the power of friendship and the importance of community.

This beautiful book is illustrated in black-and-white on every page by the author and includes an introduction, epilogue, and funny footnotes throughout. A terrific read aloud!
