Illustrations from 'Squirrels', 1972 & 1974 editions
by Brian Wildsmith

Did you know that squirrels live in two-room homes
in trees? That they can swim and use their tails as
a sail? That when they sleep, they wrap their tails
around themselves like a blanket? This picture-and-
word tribute to the furry little creatures covers
their everyday lives in vivid detail
