The Secret Life of Squirrels: A Love Story by Nancy Rose


Published: December 2016


Love is in the air with another irresistible photographic story of wild squirrels in homemade miniature settings — stopping at the bookstore, shopping for groceries, playing on the playground, and more — delighting readers and animal lovers of all ages.

A brand new companion to The Secret Life of Squirrels and Merry Christmas, Squirrels, sure to surprise and enchant readers young and old! Mr. Peanuts spends his days climbing trees and gathering nuts–but he wishes he had another squirrel to share his time with. When he meets a special squirrel friend, he soon finds himself falling in love! They visit the bookstore, go to the park, and have a romantic candlelit dinner. Will Mr. Peanuts get his happily ever after?


I love squirrels.

They are one of natures most fascinating gifts to us lowly humans! Baby squirrels are so adorable that there isn’t a proper word to describe them. Well, aside from their proper term, kit, like kittens!

Mr. Peanuts is a dynamic dude with some serious sass. He is lonely and looking to find a friend to share his life (aren’t we all). This book is a little piece of heaven. The combination of creative and cute graphics with a great story for both children and adults.

I have always wondered the dialogue shared between animals. What do the chirps and squeaks mean? It was highly entertaining to see Mr. Squirrel brought to life and see a glimpse into his innermost thoughts.


I can’t wait for more.
