Miss Suzy is driven from her comfy little home in a tree by an invasion of bully squirrels. She takes refuge in a dollhouse in the attic of a nearby abandoned home and tries to make the best of things even while she years to return home. She's even welcoming to some kind visitors who appreciate her hospitality, unlike those greedy ruffians from earlier.

It's a simple and sort of odd fantasy, but it has a pleasing if obvious ending. Though I worry it could be read as a MAGA bedtime story. ( )
