Squirrel vs. Coyote in The Bravest Squirrel in the Forest!

As I mentioned last week, not only have I revised The Bravest Squirrel Ever, but I've also revised and improved The Bravest Squirrel in the Forest.

Everyone thinks Max’s sister is braver than he is, and he’s sick of it. He’s determined to prove he is the bravest squirrel ever. He devises a plan for the humans to trap him, so he can rescue his Uncle Louie.

But things don’t go according to plan. First, he is forgotten in the cage. Then he is dumped out of a truck and abandoned in the forest with a hungry coyote hot on his trail.

Max has to give up being brave and beg others to help him. When he has the chance to save Uncle Louie or risk his life to save a friend, suddenly Max discovers just how brave he really is.

The Bravest Squirrel Ever...Now Better Than Ever!

Confession time: I've been neglecting this blog. But those days are over. Starting now!

While I've been on hiatus, my squirrels have been busy as ... beavers? Um, no. As busy as squirrels storing nuts for the winter!

Both The Bravest Squirrel Ever and The Bravest Squirrel in the Forest have been revised, so that the writing flows more smoothly and holds the reader's attention. In addition, print copies of both books will soon be available. But that's not all! Coming soon, Lana will get her own long-awaited story in The Bravest Squirrel in School.

Scared of thunder, lightning and being "flopped" by the humans, Pippi the squirrel wants to return to her mama's warm, cozy nest. Instead, she and her siblings stumble on a better forbidden human territory.

The attic nest is too perfect to resist, and soon she is drawn into a dangerous game of teasing the people. When their teasing goes too far and puts their lives in danger, she is forced to abandon the perfect nest.

However, she returns in order to rescue her brother. Instead, she becomes trapped inside. With little food and the humans plotting her demise, Pippi must depend on her wits to survive, proving to herself and the world just how brave a little squirrel can be.
