      Spoiler: the squirrel is dead. And Ricky plays with it some anyway. This book surprised me and made me sort of uncomfortable.

      Oh, the squirrel is dead? I would have been cooler with this if there was any indication on the cover - the dead squirrel was SMILING for heaven sake. I read this to my daughter at bedtime and while I'm not at all against talking about important realities of life, the abruptness of the subject was very off-putting. And why did they see a living squirrel on the last page? My 4-year-old daughter thought the squirrel hasn't actually died. I just feel this book was poorly done.

      A lot of butt hurt about this book because it deals with death. Get over it. Great illustrations and touching story. Thought it handled the topic very well.

      Mooi kinderboek die het gevoelige topic 'de dood' niet uit de weg gaat.

      I am in a public place aka the library and got a little weepy! This story hit a little close to home! It is a very nice book talking about death. Wasn't sure what was problem with the squirrel, I thought it was just playing dead, and I was also worried about encouraging kids to pick up dead animals because who knows what kind of diseases they hold. But I still thought it was well done without being grime!

      Ricky the bunny finds a squirrel in the forest. He thinks the squirrel is sleeping or sick - but the squirrel is really dead. His mom won't let him bring it in the house and tells him about Squirrel Paradise. His dad helps him bury the squirrel.I'm on the fence about this one.

      There's a reason that I don't have a picture-books-death shelf--because it is just too depressing. Nice illustrations, but I really thought the bunny and squirrel on the cover were playing . . .
