Toaff's Way

by

Illustrations by Sydney Hanson

First Release:

October 2018

ISBN: 9781524765378

Toaff is a small squirrel full of big questions. Why must I stay away from the human 's house? Why shouldn 't I go beyond the pine trees? Why do we fight with the red squirrels across the drive? His sister shrugs --that 's just the way things are. His brother bullies --because I said so. And the older squirrels scold --too many questions! Can Toaff really be the only one to wonder why?

When a winter storm separates him from his family, Toaff must make his own way in the world. It 's a world filled with danger --from foxes and hawks and cats to cars and chainsaws. But also filled with delight --the dizzying scent of apple blossoms, the silvery sound of singing, the joy of leaping so far you 're practically flying. Over the course of a year, Toaff will move into (and out of) many different dreys and dens, make some very surprising friends (and a few enemies), and begin to answer his biggest questions --what do I believe and where do I belong?

Black-and-white illustrations.
