Comments for Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: 04/08/14

cover artSquirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris is a short book of modern day animal parables. Each one is illustrated by Ian Falconer (of the Olivia picture books).

This bestiary features commonplace animals in situations that seem to be from the worst of day time television. There is a squirrel who wants to date a chipmunk, a mouse who thinks a newly hatched snake is her child, a bear with abandonment issues, and so forth.

As I'm not a fan of daytime TV or reality TV, I find these essays rather tedious to read.

The only saving grace to this book is Falconer's artwork. Seeing his unique animals doing adult things is somewhere between fascinating and off putting.
