Jerry, a wildly inventive squirrel, loves to make things that help others. He also likes to invent things just because he enjoys building. After finding out that his closest friend Gary sleepwalks, Jerry invents wings. Not wanting to go out in the snow, Jerry decides to build a system of tunnels, so they can still play and travel. Even though his neighbor implies that he is a bad inventor while telling the little squirrels a story, Jerry still builds things that will help his friends. He even helps his demanding friend Mary with her shed. Jerry always seems ready to lend a hand no matter the problem or how hard it may seem. But when something goes wrong, how does Jerry respond to the situation? You can find out in Jerry the Squirrel, the second volume in the Arestana series by Shawn Robinson.
Jerry the Squirrel by Shawn Robinson is an adorable story about two squirrels with very different personalities. Jerry is an inventor, while Gary is curious about his friend’s every move and is often overprotective. Other characters in the story range from kind and caring to demanding and somewhat snide. Each unique personality adds extra depth as Jerry and his friends go through each of the stories in this collection. My favorite part is how Jerry always remains calm, even when something goes wrong, while his friend Gary overreacts or becomes excited. I especially loved Mary The Robot I & II because Jerry shows how important it is to be a good friend by helping her even though she yells at him repeatedly. I recommend it to all young children and pre-teens that love adventurous stories. I hope to see many more adventures with Jerry and his friends!
