Publisher's Summary

Meet Toaff: a lovable squirrel, and new standout character, searching for a place to call home in this gem of a story by a Newbery Medal-winning author.

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?

Master storyteller Cynthia Voigt offers listeners a rich and rewarding story of finding one's way in the world.

Critic Reviews

"Skillfully presenting sights from an animal’s perspective and touching upon social issues such as prejudice and elitism, Newbery Medalist Voigt provides a lovely story to curl up with." (Publishers Weekly)

"Readers [will be] right at home with kind, brave Toaff and feel reassured in the formidable task of understanding the world outside their front door." (Booklist)

Squirrels Squirrels and ... Chainsaws?

• audiobook • 3.75

My youngest granddaughter loves squirrels. It was one of her first words because when I visited her, we would go outside to find the ‘quirrel’.

I mostly enjoyed the adventures, just not te world building and explanations. It was a bit to tedious and mundane for the young- and the older.

Oh, the chainsaw is just the humans maintaining their land; no animals are sacrificed or murdered.

Toaff & Company were a delightful lot and is highly recommended for those young at heart or for sharing with young children.
