The Write Time & Place!











{June 5, 2011}   Book Review: The Adventures of A Squirrel Named Peanut

I’ve been sent an advance review copy of a new book by acclaimed journalist and fellow writer, Patricia Lieb.  When I received the book I thought, “I’ll just take a peek and read it tomorrow.”  Well, I couldn’t put it down! 

The Adventures of A Squirrel Named Peanut is a photo book about the cutest little squirrel whose name is Peanut.  The photographs–taken by the author herself–are excellent and add so much detail to this book that the prose comes to life because of them.

Peanut is a chubby, baby squirrel whose bravery allows him to befriend the author, who happens to provide at least one square meal a day for Peanut.

Peanut narrates this charming story, which is broken into eleven little adventures.  Peanut is a delight…from his scratching at the screen for food to eating out of the author’s hand to eating a potted avocado plant…he’s as irresistible to the reader as he is to his benefactor!

Children will love the photographs of this chubby little squirrel.  Adults will like the little lessons woven into some of the adventures such as learning that being rude is not a nice trait to have.

All in all, I enjoyed this little squirrel’s narrative.

Patricia Lieb is an accomplished journalist and a talented writer.  I’ve enjoyed her work and I wish her the very best success with The Adventures of A Squirrel Named Peanut.

When the book is released, I’ll post purchasing information.  To learn more about Patricia, visit her website at:  http://writerswriteon.com/

I also have seen the book in advance. I did not stop reading it until the book was finished. The writing and photos are excellent…



Way to go, Patricia! Children’s books are not easy to write!
