Separated from his family during a winter storm, Toaff, a young squirrel, resiliently sets out to find a new place to live. Over the course of the next three seasons, Toaff’s survival skills and previously held views on the world are challenged through unexpected friendships, new experiences, and the occasional perilous situation. Toaff’s naiveté and innocent confidence are reflected in Meyers’s earnest and thoughtful narration. Subtle vocal shifts bring Toaff’s newfound animal friends (older and wiser squirrels, a pair of dogs, a hawk) to life.

From the November/December 2019 Horn Book Magazine.
