Girl versus squirrel [VOX audio enabled book] / written by Hayley Barrett ; illustrated by Renée Andriani.

Barrett, Hayley, (author.). Andriani, Renée, (illustrator.). Critt, C. J., (narrator.). Barrett, Hayley. Container of (expression): Girl versus squirrel. Spoken word (Critt) (Added Author). VOX books. (Added Author).


One resourceful girl. One determined squirrel. Great minds meet their match in this tale of persistence and learning that compromise can be a wonderful thing. Pearl has built three bird feeders-one looks like a house, one looks like a tube, and one looks like a teacup because it is a teacup. After she fills the bird feeders she sits back to enjoy the show-until a squirrel scares the birds away and gobbles up all the peanuts in the teacup. This will never do, and Pearl declares that girl versus squirrel is on. She raises the teacup higher and higher and finally builds an obstacle course to deter the squirrel. Does she succeed? Of course not-but Pearl learns that sometimes it is best-and can even be fun-to find a way to compromise. A strong alliterative text and bold graphic art make this perfect for reading out loud.
