“Deep in the woods, in a crooked old tree,
Lived two little squirrels, with Mum, who made three.
Hazel was brave—a flash and a flurry,
While Rowan was shy, and tended to worry.”

Rowan the little red squirrel and his sister Hazel are leaving on their own for the very first time. Hazel is eager to explore, and they set off before they know it on an exciting adventure. However, Rowan is worried about the strange noises in the forest around them and their mother's warning to look out for the fox!

Written in Lynne Rickards’ signature rhyme, this charming tale of two very different siblings finding their own strengths features dynamic watercolor illustrations of Scottish wildlife and two adorable, wee squirrels!

From the creators of the best-selling puffin adventure, Skye the Puffling, this book brings the beauty of the Scottish Highlands and its animal inhabitants charmingly to life.

(Ages 3–6 years)
